Smoked, Halls Chophouse, City Marketthe list goes on. You’ve likely visited one of these spots — but do you know what local design firm brought them to life?

Architecture/interiors/planning firm Garvin Design Group is behind some of the most recognizable (and local-favorite) spots around Soda City. Think:
