Joule, the re-located first restaurant from celebrated husband and wife cooking team Rachel Yang and Seif Chirchi at the Fremont Collective is a riff on the Korean steakhouse. The design, like the menu, is simple and concise — an open kitchen with counter seating, a long banquette, and a communal dining table and bar at the front. The ingredients: fir casework, marble and zinc countertops, a band of mirror wrapping around the room above a robin's egg blue customized damask wall print playing off the name of the restaurant. The detailing is restrained; the lines are clean. The structure of the existing building — a converted warehouse — provides the backdrop. Joule shares the Fremont Collective with the Heliotrope designed mountain sports retailer, evo, and The Whale Wins restaurant.
