Restaurant Design

Restaurant design is a challenge ~ not only does your food need to look as appealing as it tastes … but so does the interior.

It's been said we "eat with our eyes" and I believe we start doing this the moment our foot steps in the door.

What am I eating ...  Is it pasta by the plate? Tapas for an hour? Gourmet because tonight's special? Casual because I'm too tired to cook for myself?

M.B. Post Restaurant

Whatever the occasion, the interior sets the stage for the meal we enjoy. We subconsciously project how the food will taste based on the environment it is presented in.

Here's a few of my favorite restaurant designs that have interiors as scrumptious as their menus … bon appétit!

Next time you enter a restaurant, take notice of all the details ~ lighting, materials, texture ~ that create the backdrop for your dining experience.
