Gusto: A Guide to Restaurant Design
Just as the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, "the essence of restaurant design cannot be found in any one element but in the unity of all ingredients working together to create a singular experience." So begins the book Gusto: A Journey Through Culinary Design.
