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.
