San Diego’s Cedar Clad ‘Madison’ Would Sit Pretty On W. 4th Avenue

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) Madison is an easy-on-the-eyes, 3,000 sqft eatery in San Diego with menus inspired by the Mediterranean and Southern California. The arched, cedar-clad ceiling draws eyes up, cathedral-like, but the dining room – also designed by local studio Archisects – sees cool nooks and colourful alcoves lining the walls. The whole things is bright, airy and altogether different with frontage barely hinting at what’s within. We’d love to see something similarly elevated and surprising on West 4th Avenue, perhaps on the same block (or immediately thereabouts) as Bishop’s.

We Want This Beautiful Restaurant in Helsinki for Northeast False Creek

The fine but casual, two-storey 'Roster' in Finland would fit right into Vancouver's soon-to-be newest neighbourhood.

Imagining this Steakhouse on Chinatown’s Edge

The old Wild Rice address has been home to three restaurants in three years, which makes imagining a fourth rather easy.

This Spanish Restaurant for Blood Alley, Please

Spanish architectural firm Lucas y Hernández-Gil created this stunner for Seville, but we'd much rather have it in Gastown.

Trading ‘The Keg’ on Alberni Street for Mexico City’s ‘Piedra Sal’

The good looking "Piedra Sal" occupies a second-storey corner location in Paseo de la Reforma. We'd much rather have it here in Vancouver.
