You don’t need to be a food critic to know that the restaurant
experience is about far more than what’s on your plate. And a spate of recent
openings and relaunches suggest that delicious dcor is a higher priority than
ever for many restaurateurs.
In London, Gordon Ramsay’s new Bread Street
Kitchen has been winning plaudits as an Art Deco-style venue, with
warehouse-height ceilings, checker-board flooring and vintage lamps, despite
being in a brand new building.
With its marble, leather booths and vast

To experience how visually impaired people travel from point A to point B, participants were first taught how to use a white [...]
