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.

Omar’s Place in London Would Suit Chinatown’s Newly Built ‘Brixton Flats’

If a restaurant design rhymes, then London's Omar's Place fits the same stanza as Chinatown's Kissa Tanto and Yaletown's Fayuca...

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.
