MAD Social is not only the newest restaurant to fall under the PSSR umbrella, it marks a new chapter in the Phil Stefani Signature Restaurants history. It is the first restaurant opened by Gina Stefani, Phil’s daughter. She is stepping in and bringing her vision to life through MAD. Taking the traditional family values that her father has instilled in the Stefani iconic brand over the past 35 years and offering her own fresh perspective while staying true to those values.
Adolfo Garcia, designer, oversaw the design of MAD Social and has kept it true to its warehouse roots while bringing a French industrial chic feel to the space. An intimate and refined place, MAD Social has 65 seats in the dining room, 12 at the bar and will offer outdoor seating in the patio space in the warmer months.
In keeping with the industrial past of the West Loop neighborhood, Garcia used “1900’s warehouse” as a design inspiration. He utilized the natural elements in the space, like the original timber ceilings and hardwood flooring. Leftover wood from the buildout was reclaimed and re-used. Guests will see it incorporated throughout dining room from the table tops to focal point art pieces, including a jigsaw-esque design on the front of the bar and an oversized wooden mosaic piece on the east wall.
