Restaurant Porn is a regular column of daydreams presented as a means to introduce Vancouver diners and designers to concepts, looks, and fully-formed ideas that they might draw an inkling of inspiration from. We do our best to pair the foreign rooms with local addresses so as to let everyone in on the daydream.

—————————————

(via) It’s a strikingly simple design solution for a tiny sushi bar, but the well-lit hanging chopstick situation at The Basho Sushi Bar – located just outside the Portuguese city of Porto – says what needs to be said with an artful economy of effort. With just 260 sqft to work with, designer Paolo Merlini didn’t want diners to be distracted from their sushi worship so he used 8,400 chopsticks to suggest the curvy silhouette of a traditional Japanese temple roof. Pretty clever, no? We’d take a version of it just off the seawall in Olympic Village.
