Designed by Anthony Agriam and his company Bishop Pass, the 52-seat restaurant is an intimate space with aspects of a Singaporean chop house and a one-room schoolhouse. The interior design is a garde manger framed by wooden bookcases with metal detailing that morphs into a lighting fixture. The walls are distressed plaster, stencilled with subtle text, with floor-to-ceiling windows.

Food that exercises your palate served in a relaxed environment that feels more residential than restaurant as if you're being invited into Tin's home.
