Shea partnered with James Beard-recognized Chef Jorge Guzman and cocktail guru Travis Serbus to create the brand and design for Petite Leon in Minneapolis’ Kingfield, redefining what a neighborhood restaurant can be. A saturated palette and dark woods echo the layered flavors and European-influenced menu. Comfortable banquettes and cozy booths make it the perfect spot for a casual evening or special occasion, while a hanging custom art piece brings extra energy to the showstopping wood bar, clad in copper—all coming together in a space that embodies warm simplicity.
