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.

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.
