Interior design for restaurants is ever-changing, as one trend replaces another in attempt to seduce sophisticated diners the world over. This book is a celebration of the most inspirational and beautiful restaurant spaces on the contemporary scene. An introduction includes interviews with 11 of the world's most influential interior designers, who talk about their design philosophy and approach, their own favorite eateries and what makes a great restaurant space. This is followed by four themed chapters: Global Views, Modern Classic, New Baroque, and High Concept. The 45 featured projects include Bentel and Bentel's The Modern at MoMA and Christian Liaigre's Buddakan, both in New York, Patrick Jouin's Mix in Las Vegas, and Jordan Mozer's Copper Bleu in Lakesville, Minnesota. Fans of Bethan Ryder's earlier books will not be disappointed by this colorful and exciting new survey of the latest trends from the cream of the international design world.
