KING'S FISH HOUSE
NEW CONCEPT IN 2015
NEW CONCEPT IN 2015
King's Fish House was developed as a result of a cross-country road trip to find the ultimate seafood experience. They put on bibs, pulled up a seat, and ordered no-name dishes off hand-written and chalkboard "Specials" boards to find that great hospitality and a shared passion for quality seafood is what makes the most wholesome and meaningful experience.
Recently remodeled King's Fish House locations pay homage to their upscale sister restaurant, Water Grill, through the use of natural woods, large tufted booths, oversized captain's chairs, and nautical décor.
HDG developed this concept as “an unfussy foodie favorite” that serves artisanal ingredients as American classics. The design nods to its name by incorporating bold hues, dark wood fixtures, and national symbols in the artwork such as painted murals of America the Beautiful lyrics and a distressed American flag. In two words, the JFAT design can be described as “nautical Americana.”
Fun Fact: HDG Principals hand-spliced and installed all the rope fixtures in all of the JFAT properties.

Design plays a major role at Castaway with operable picture windows that fully open to the patio, a prominent meat dry-aging room, a floor-to-ceiling wine cellar, a compelling wrap-around bar, and a highly coveted Chef’s Table set up.
HDG developed an unforgettable patio experience by incorporating a fireplace and fire elements, secluded nooks, and luxe teak furniture overlooking the San Fernando Valley and Downtown Los Angeles.
The Village curates the best of Napa into a unique Wine Country experience by featuring nine tasting rooms showcasing the best boutique wineries; an onsite upscale market, Fivetown Grocery; a Food & Wine Center; and an expansive 16,000-square-foot event lawn.
HDG worked closely with the families behind Trinitas Cellars and Foley Food and Wine Society to develop custom tasting rooms that support the lifestyle of each brand.
ANGEL OAK AT BACARA RESORT
Angel Oak at Bacara aims to be approachable and welcoming to all guests; suit and tie or flip flops and jeans. The stark, angular architecture; moody, but clean color palette; and modern fixtures expected of a traditional steakhouse are offset by natural elements including gnarled bonsai trees and a bright, serene ocean view.
Featured Design Element: The floor-to-ceiling custom mosaic art piece at the restaurant's entrance features over 18,000 individual tiles. The piece was conceptualized by HDG and was executed by the industry’s leading producer of mosaic for interior and exterior decoration, Bisazza.
LAZY DOG CAFÉ
HDG developed the mountain-inspired, dog-friendly concept for Lazy Dog Café in 2003 based on founder Chris Simms’s fond memories of the days he spent on his parents’ ranch in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The design relies heavily on Southwestern textiles and natural materials, incorporating staggered stone on the walls and varying species, colors, and cuts of wood on the floor, fixtures, and interior over structures.
Awards: Lazy Dog Café won the Nation’s Restaurant News “Hot Concepts Award” in 2009.
Fun Fact: Samoa, Mike Hatch’s beloved Pitbull, has her photo hanging on the wall in several of the Lazy Dog locations.
LUCILLE’S SMOKEHOUSE BAR-B-QUE
Jeff Hatch, HDG Founder, and Craig Hofman, President of Hofman Hospitality Group, packed their bags and ate their way through the various BBQ regions of the South, taste-testing the spice rubs, savory sauces, and fixin’s that make Southern BBQ the best of the best. With the help of a branding consultant, “Lucille’s Smokehouse Bar-B-Que” and the story that goes along with Lucille Buchanan’s big move to California came to life!
The design aims to capture the fun, jazz-inspired atmosphere of the French Quarter with bold colors, whimsical and playful art and accessories, and plantation-style architecture.
NEW CONCEPT IN 2012
NEW CONCEPT IN 2012
Although the first location made its debut in Los Angeles in 1989, the iconic Water Grill design that guests know and love today originated in 2012 when the original restaurant was remodeled. This deep-sea fishing ship turned restaurant features rough-sawn structural timbers; oceanic blues complementing yellow ochres; huge hand-strewn oyster shell chandeliers; custom pulley sconces with nautical rope and cleat details; and oversized captain’s chairs.
Fun fact: King’s Seafood Company shucks 3 million oysters per year; 14,000 of which are hand-strung to create the oyster chandelier lighting the oyster bar in Water Grill Las Vegas.
Ketch's design juxtaposes modern-industrial and rustic elements by mixing contemporary light fixtures, metal bar and liquor displays, and geometric bar tile patterns with natural wood trusses and ceilings, custom exposed wood lounge settees, and muted and comfortable textiles.
Featured Design Element: Ketch is filled with fun, nautical art pieces such as an abstract picture of a diver kissing a mermaid; a diving suit and helmet; a custom topographical map of Catalina Island; and text in the shape of a sailor that reads "a woman knows the face of the man she loves like a sailor knows the open sea."
Playa Mesa has a vibrant, south of the border ambiance showcasing a traditional comal; a large bar over structure with Agave spirits, select Mexican lagers and hand-picked Spanish, Central and South American wines; and bold, colorful textiles.
Inspired by cultural influences synonymous with coastal Baja and mainland Mexico, Playa Mesa brings a refreshing approach to authentic Mexican food, drink, and design.
TANNER'S AT PASÉA
Tanner's showcases breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean from the indoor and outdoor seating areas, and features an extended indoor bar plus a chic Treehouse-style rooftop bar that overlooks the ocean. The restaurant offers guest and locals a playful beachside atmosphere that connects them to the local surf scene while enjoying an unforgettable dinning experience
Awards: Recent accolades include being named "Best of the Best-Hotel- Restaurants" by Modern Luxury OC and "The Best Oceanfront Dining" by Elevated Life Magazine.
HDG worked closely with Tender Greens to create a reproducible design for their national expansion. The design incorporates natural, light-colored woods and wood elements such as light fixtures and ceiling trusses; bright and funky lenticular wall displays that change with the viewers perspective; and numerous shades of green and various earth-tones.

TANNER'S AT PASEA RESORT AND SPA
VISTA COLLINA RESORT
"We brought Hatch in for our Pasea Hotel food and beverage program specifically to design a restaurant and bar that was distinctively different than the hotel. We wanted a completely different sense and feel so that we would attract outside guests. Hatch Design Group delivered a great food and beverage strategy. We will absolutely hire them again and would recommend them for any project that has multiple F/B outlets and where the idea is to create many different designs and delivery under the same roof. "

TROPICS BAR AND GRILL AT HILTON HAWAIIAN VILLAGE
"Under Hatch Design Group’s guidance, expertise and professionalism, our Hawaiian Village Tropics Bar and Grill was transformed from an under-utilized, prime Waikiki beachfront restaurant into what has now become 'Waikiki’s newest sizzling hot spot.' Upon completion of this transformation our revenue has also increased tenfold. Hatch Design Group has the true ability to understand the goals and expectations of their clients and to deliver a creation that ultimately produces profitable results."
BRIGANTINE FAMILY RESTAURANTS
MIGUEL'S CANTINA, BRIGANTINE ESCONDIDO
BRIGANTINE DEL MAR, BRIGANTINE PORTSIDE PIER
"We had heard great things about Hatch Design Group and wanted to give them a try with our new site in Carlsbad, Miguel's. Our vision was to create a restaurant that provided guests a place they could bring their family, or a date or have a fun spot to sit and watch a ballgame. I think we achieved all three with the design of Miguel’s Carlsbad. It is upscale, yet still a place where families feel comfortable. The design is getting rave reviews across the board. We were so impressed, that we again hired Hatch to design the complete makeover of our famous Del Mar Brigantine Restaurant. Hatch exceeded our expectations and was on budget on both projects."
MARYJANE'S AT HARD ROCK HOTEL SAN DIEGO
"I feel Hatch Design Group is one of the most creative firms I have ever had the pleasure with which to work. In addition to providing cutting-edge design, they truly listened to our needs when developing Maryjane’s restaurant and bar at Hard Rock Hotel San Diego. Everyone on the Hatch team was flexible, responsive, resourceful, efficient and friendly, even under the most stressful deadlines. Best of all, Hatch Design Group gets the job done on time, on budget."
WAVE CREST RESORTS
HILTON CAPE REY, HILTON GARDEN INN CARLSBAD
"It was the impressive portfolio and the designers’ understanding of elegance and Hilton brand standards that made Hatch Design Group the obvious choice for this Hilton resort. The Team also met the budget and worked ahead of deadlines which allowed Hilton Carlsbad Oceanfront Resort and Spa to welcome guests a month in advance of the scheduled grand opening."
