If you’re a fan of the new Le Bernardin dining room and can’t get enough of the menu design at The Dutch then these are the people you want to know about. Monday, May 7, the James Beard Foundation will announce the winners for best outstanding restaurant design and best graphic design.
At Food Republic, we appreciate selecting our entrees from a menu with carefully curated typeface and sipping our cocktails at a flawlessly designed bar. We appreciate the people behind these design decisions even more, which is why we tracked down the designers and asked them to share their aesthetic know-how with us.
See the full list of nominees below, with links to Food Republic interviews with each of the designers.
