A host of delicious dining environments whets the appetite.

Project: Piraña

Site: London

Standout: Named after the spirited South American fish, and serving up ceviches, tacos, and empanadas, the setting is as equally vibrant courtesy of caliente wooden paneling and jade terrazzo flooring.

2. Firm: George Wong Design

Project: DaDong

Site: New York

Standout: A traditional Chinese courtyard is conjured—and updated—with bamboo-mimicking acrylic rods, a hunk of Chinese limestone for the host stand, and a hexagonal “window,” a common architectural feature.

4. Firm: Lucas y Hernández-Gil
