Eater Talks: The history of restaurant design in London
Wednesday, 27 November — 6:45pm
Eater London and the Ace Hotel will continue their ongoing food and restaurant industry discussion series in September.
Next up is the evolution of restaurant design in London: We will explore the role of New York City in London, the necessary limitations of budget, the importance of Cafe Rouge, the inimitability of St. John; the good, the bad, the beautiful, and the ugly; and just how important is a restaurant’s layout and looks in 2019.
Eater London editor Adam Coghlan will host the latest Eater Talk in conversation with Afroditi Krassa, the product and interior designer behind Itsu, Dishoom, and Lucky Cat; Katy Manolescue, who led the design projects for Hoppers restaurants, Clipstone, BAO Fitzrovia; and Shayne Brady, of Brady Williams, the company responsible for design at XU, Brigadiers, and Soutine.
Why do so many restaurants look the same? What determines trends? How much does designing a restaurant cost? And who are the people behind the best and most recognisable restaurant aesthetics?
All that, and more: Join us on the 27th November to discuss one of the most important and comparatively under-discussed elements of the restaurant industry.
This Eater London x Ace Hotel discussion will take place on Wednesday, 27 November from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Tickets cost £15, and include one drink.
Arrival at 6.45 p.m. is recommended in order to begin the talk promptly at 7.00 p.m.
