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) This week we’re drooling messily over the look and concept of Melbourne’s good-looking No. 19 cafe.

What it is: A day-only looker designed by local firm Biasol and inspired by 1950s Greek delicatessens. Its breakfast and lunch menus focus on healthy foods and high quality ingredients, offering a range of items from smoothies to wagyu burgers.

Where it is: The Melbourne, Australia suburb of Ascot Vale, specifically the commercial high street of Union Road, which is lined with 2/3 storey heritage buildings constructed between 1885 and 1930.

Where we wish it was: On the seawall in Coal Harbour, ideally on Coal Harbour Quay at the foot of Nicola Street, where it would face Cardero’s Restaurant and catch its fair share of shade.

Why we wish it was there: Because this particular stretch of Coal Harbour could use a bright eatery/cafe that focused on quality ingredients and clean, uncluttered design.

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.

We Want This Beautiful Seafood Restaurant for the Foot of Beatty Street

The basement of the iconic Sun Tower is currently occupied by a fancy gym, but let's pretend for a second that it wasn't...

This Wes Anderson-Inspired ‘Budapest Cafe’ for Kerrisdale, Please

It has that mix of old money eccentricity and oblivious ridiculousness characterized in The Royal Tenenbaums and The Fantastic Mr. Fox

This Tiny Basement Bar in Mayfair for an Underground Address in Hastings-Sunrise

North Audley Cantine is a gorgeous, windowless basement bar that appears to be sprung from the colourful mind of local artist Andy Dixon.
