Overview

We've selected 80 innovative installations to demonstrate the creativity and variety of both architectural design and interior design that provide unique and inviting dining surroundings. Over 300 beautiful color photographs illustrate a cross-section of cafes and bistros which are so artful, they actually rival the aura of some of the famous four-star restaurants. The spectrum of design runs from ultra-contemporary slate, steel and glass to brick-exposed walls in warehouses and old historic buildings. They're eclectic...and ethnic...and elegantly embellished. Some of these mini-eateries are free-standing; others are installed in shopping malls or as part of a destination locale. We spotlight coffee environs where stacks of local newspapers accompany the cappuccino. At a '50s-style diner, the retro counter and stool make dining a nostalgic event. And how about stylish banquettes in a "takeout" shop. Even bakeries and delis have caught on to the artful addition of stylish tables, lighting and decor to turn these ordinary food retailers into extraordinary bistros. Whether your profession involves you in interior design or architectural design of establishments...or if the world of food and restaurants is your metier, this is a reference book that belongs in your library.
