Branding and illustrated menu by New York design studio Triboro for Brooklyn cafe and bar Sauvage

Sauvage is a Brooklyn-based cafe and cocktail bar from Joshua Boissy and Krystof Zizka, the duo behind Maison Premiere. It is described as being reflective of the staple establishments of New York and Paris, and has a menu of French-accented American dishes. This is also reflected throughout its interior design, a mix of mosaic flooring, brass rimmed circular tables, bent wood furniture, ornamental mirrors, brass fixtures and fittings, and a curved bar with a white marble top.
