An integrated approach to restaurant design, incorporating front- and back-of-the-house operations

Restaurant design plays a critical role in attracting and retaining customers. At the same time, design must facilitate food preparation and service. Successful Restaurant Design shows how to incorporate your understanding of the restaurant's front- and back-of-the-house operations into a design that meets the needs of the restaurant's owners, staff, and clientele. Moreover, it shows how an understanding of the restaurant's concept, market, and menu enables you to create a design that not only facilitates a seamless operation but also enhances the dining experience.

This Third Edition has been thoroughly revised and updated with coverage of all the latest technological advances in restaurant operations. Specifically, the Third Edition offers:

  • All new case solutions of restaurant design were completed within five years prior to this edition's publication. The examples illustrate a variety of architectural, decorative, and operational solutions for many restaurant types and styles of service.

  • All in-depth interviews with restaurant design experts are new to this edition. To gain insights into how various members of the design team think, the authors interviewed a mix of designers, architects, restaurateurs, and kitchen designers.

  • New information on sustainable restaurant design throughout the book for both front and back of the house.

  • New insights throughout the book about how new technologies and new generations of diners are impacting both front- and back-of-the-house design.

The book closes with the authors' forecast of how restaurants will change and evolve over the next decade, with tips on how designers and architects can best accommodate those changes in their designs.

1.0 out of 5 stars not so much Dec 3 2010
By N. Montgomery - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I thought this book would have good tips or useful guides for restaurant design..not so much. It is a case by case study of specific restaurant projects, none of them very remarkable and the details are pretty vague. Worst of all the entire book, with the exception of the cover, is in black and white. Not worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent text for architects and restaurateurs Aug. 1 2011
By Fredric Lee McLaughlin - Published on Amazon.com
This book is for serious professional designers. As a licensed architect, I have not designed a restaurant for awhile, but I was sure glad to have the 1st edition of this text when I did a few some years back. I would suggest you read the reviews for the 2nd edition to better assess the value of this text. The 1st edition I have does have few color photos, but I was looking for the serious detailed planning and technical guidance and discussion I found in the book, not visual entertainment. Well worth purchasing, for professionals.
