New York’s Stylish Dig Inn Would Make A Nice Addition To Cambie St.

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) What initially caught our attention about the brand new Dig Inn wasn’t its good looks or aesthetic variety but rather the fact that it donated half of the sales on its first day to the American Farmland Trust. That’s a nice way to get started, no?

WHAT IT IS: Dig Inn is a brand new, casual, 4,200 sqft restaurant designed by ASH NYC. It’s divided into three distinctly different zones: one for dining, one for food pick-up, and one for evening drinks.

WHERE IT IS: The village of Rye Brook in New York’s Westchester County, population 9,500 (on the state line with Connecticut).

WHERE WE WISH IT WAS: On Cambie Street in Gastown next to Meat & Bread.

WHY WE WISH IT WAS THERE: Because it’s just so dang purdy! For real, look at all that oak and marble! It reminds us of a more casual Farmer’s Apprentice, one that would gel with Vancouver’s quick-service lunch crowd.

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.
