Cafe Designby Martin M. Pegler
Cafe Design brings together 60 fresh design solutions for cafes from Seattle to London with themes that vary from the romantic French 75 in Laguna Beach, California, with its turn-of-the-century Parisian flare, to Ben's Kosher Deli, a New York eatery with a prominently lit canopy and touches of Yiddish humor, to the Coyote Grill in Scottsdale, Dick Clark's A B Diner in Illinois, and Toon Lagoon Comic Strip Cafe in Universal City, Florida.
Edited by Martin M. Pegler, longtime expert in the field, this 176-page book with 250 full-color images shows you how the design of Abacus in Dallas complements the "fusion cuisine" through an exhilarating integration of food, art and architecture. Another "in" spot featuring a fusion menu is Cantaloup in Sao Paulo, Brazil, where a central skylight floods the space and lights up the happy yellows, golds and peach tones used throughout.
See how a rehabilitated shell in Philadelphia's historic section became Fork, a restaurant that reflects the area as an artists' community with a creative menu to match. Momo's in San Francisco, across from the new Pac Bell Park, is "the quintessence of both a high class restaurant and genteel men's club" with a scheme suggesting the Arts & Crafts movement.
In Las Vegas, visit supercolossal, 40,000 square foot WB Stage 16 with its choice of four movie experiences from Rick's Cafe American from "Casablanca" to the money set of "Golddiggers of 1933" made with the help of actual construction drawings from Warner Brothers Studios.
