An Appetite for Design: Wallpaper's Short List For Best Restaurants




Today is day 2 of Wallpaper's design award nominees. And it's the shortlist for Best Restaurants, so, I hope you're hungry for good design.

1.

Freeman's, New York
Refurbished this year, this Lower East Side restaurant features a taxidermist's dream of a dining room, bedecked like an English hunting lodge. Offering seasonal cocktails and a homespun American menu with European accents (including wild-boar terrine), proprietors Taavo Somer and William Tigertt have created the favourite dining room for Manhattan's foodies.

2.

Mathias Dahlgren, Stockholm
Located in a new building and with interior design by Briton Ilse Crawford, Mathias Dahlgren's restaurant at the Grand Hôtel Stockholm is divided into two complementary areas – Matsalen for à la carte dining and the more informal Matbaren – by a Studio Job-designed gilded narrative screen featuring kitchen tools, rustic Swedish icons and Viking longboats.

3.

Negro De Anglona, Madrid
In Madrid's historic Palacio de Anglona, this restaurant boasts a cutting-edge but intimate interior. Designed by Luis Galliusi, the almost entirely monochrome space is offset by heritage-inspired details such as large backlit images of European royal palaces and dramatic, patterned curtains. The Oriental-Mediterranean fusion menu is courtesy of chef Aitor García.

4.

Sakae, Busan
Part of Studio Gaia's transformation of Korea's Busan Paradise Hotel, Japanese restaurant Sakae is designed to resemble the interior of a traditional Japanese gift box. Against a background of honey-hued wood, the walls are clad in red kimono fabric, patterned with blossom-laden branches. The sushi, teppenyaki and speciality boiled eel show a similar lightness of touch.

5.

Scott's, London
Relaunched by Caprice Holdings, historic seafood venue Scott's has been updated by Swedish designer Martin Brudnizki and chef-director Mark Hix. An oval oyster bar and a 3m-long display of crustacea dominate the light-filled front section, while the interior is quintessentially British, with oak panelling, leather banquettes and walls hung with contemporary art.
