I love service station architecture – have written about it several times (Lilia Restaurant in Brooklyn and Nashville). Excited, therefore, to discover a Top 10 list of restaurants housed in former gas stations in the Culture section of the Team Valvoline website.
All 10 restaurants sound great but these 3 are standouts:
- Barbuto, NYC (I didn’t even know this was a former gas station!)
- Big Star in Chicago
- The Filling Station in Orange, Ca.
Not that Valvoline has asked for my advice, but I wish the whole site were as easy to navigate and as cool as the culture section – which is absolutely terrific. But – in the meantime – thanks for the list of restaurants will check out many on my travels.
