Food and Wine: 7 New Restaurants in North America
Restaurants all over North America are flourishing. Keep reading for the proof—7 restaurant interiors designed by far-flung firms:
1. Firm: Allied Works Architecture
Project: Sokol Blosser, Dayton, Oregon
Standout: Cedar dominates at this winery, from the untreated planks of the striated facade to the clear-varnished tongue-and-groove boards in the tasting room.
2. Firm: SLDesign
Project: Buffet Americana, Tunica, Mississippi
Standout: Referencing classic American work wear, select walls are adorned with bolts of denim, spools of cotton rope, and tiles crafted from vintage leather belts.
3. Firm: Hacin + Associates
Project: Gather, Boston.
Standout: Bare bulbs, dangling from a canopy of perforated particleboard, light up the restaurant at the multi-use District Hall, part of a municipal innovation zone.
4. Firm: Parallel Design
Project: Pop @ Pod, New York
Standout: Off a hotel lobby, a burger joint’s walls of laser-cut anodized aluminum and silk-screened glass provide a peppy counterpoint to the copious cedar.
5. Firm: Lundberg Design
Project: Hard Water, San Francisco
Standout: Above the bar in Carrara marble and stools with oiled-walnut seats, a steel buoy, turned into a pendant fixture, reminds drinkers of the Embarcadero location.
6. Firm: Scott & Scott Architects
Project: Bestie, Vancouver, British Columbia
Standout: Lamps, coats, and umbrellas are among the items that can hang from birch pegs inserted into holes in the oiled-spruce paneling at a German-themed eatery.
7. Firm: Riscala Agnese Design Group
Project: Potatopia, New York
Standout: Starch-white chevrons were hand-stenciled onto a plywood wall and canopy at an outpost of a casual restaurant chain dedicated to the humble spud.
