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. Capitalizing on publisher Gingko Press's ability to cull together top-notch examples of graphic and interior design, Gusto is a tasty roundup of nearly 60 restaurants, bars, and cafes—event mobile eateries—from around the world (presented in 256 pages overflowing with 750 photos and illustrations).
