Tavern on the Green
Designed by Nicole Hagedorn in partnership with KBot Consulting.
With the reopening of Tavern on the Green NYC, there was an opportunity to present a modern design and powerful technology platform to support the marketing and communication needs of the historically famous restaurant, while supporting its 21st century needs.
Alphex Information Solutions was selected as the Lead Technology Consultant for this project to assist in the technical architecture, design production coordination, application development and launch of this website. Along with a series of secondary systems to support the business on the web, Alphex Information Solutions continues to provide top-to-bottom support and management of the entire domain.
This site was built using Drupal 7, utilizing the immense flexibility of the platform for the management and ordering of content in unique ways across the site. The visual design and rich media requirements of the property required us to select a platform that would allow for ease of use, and ease of theming to meet the unique design requirements.
With the history of the restaurant and the incredible amount of press that was covering opening day, we hosted the site with Pantheon. Pantheon is an enterprise class hosting platform for Drupal, and between the platform choice and the powerful hosting package, the site was able to support over 200,000 page views in the first 20 days of operation. Impressive conversion rates were made between people visiting the site, and completing reservations to have a meal at the restaurant after its opening day. You can read more about the launch success here.
Designed by Jen Denis, this project required an entirely custom theme for a Drupal 7 backend. This site succeeded in delivering a completely responsive design for iphones and ipads, while also expanding to fill the width of larger monitors with additional artwork in real time as you resize your browser. In each possible resolution you might look at, the home page and menu pages animate while you load, using JQuery to enable cross browser animations with just HTML and CSS. Other parts of the website include various bits of "multimedia" technology, including the About page which uses HTML5 video to help tell the businesses story. In addition, the food they make is delicious!
