Eating out should visually entice

I’m a real
believer in being seduced by your surroundings. If I like it, I LOVE it and if
it’s meh, I seriously DISLIKE it. I can’t help it; even though I try to curb my
inclination to critique it is usually readily available, wanting to join the party.  For me personally, when I go out to eat the
environment in which I enjoy my food is as important as the food
itself.  {I’ve probably made all
the foodies out there shake their heads in disbelief}  That doesn’t mean that it has to be fancy or white table
clothed, just considered.

The luxury steakhouse Beef Bar has restaurants
in Monaco, Berlin and Mexico City. Emil Humbert and Christophe Poyet designed
the spaces 
using geometry and symmetry whilst creating great focal points such as the lighting in bronze and alabaster, a tarnished metal bar and lots of matt black and shades of gold.


The above is in stark
contrast to
the grungy,
punk fairground design from London-based design practice Shed for MEATLiquor,
Brighton. There is no hiding from the patterns throughout this interior, the
ceilings, pillars, floors and walls are blanketed in graphics all illuminated by the
colourful neon, including a giant Sin sign. So wrong its right. Completely agreeing with my hypothesis that eating out should visually entice, my son had the best reaction upon entering MeatLiquor – complete and utter awe.
