The Beef Bar

I'm definitely someone that loves their food...I don't know if I'd go so far as to label myself a 'foodie', but it certainly is a passion...and so it makes sense that restaurants and their design are also something I'm very passionate about.  Its a combination of two of my great loves. 

I attended the HD Asia conference which was just on in Hong Kong this week.  There were some amazing speakers on the panel who talked about the trends and future of hospitality design in this region, and the ever changing nature of restaurants was one of the topics covered.  Tony Chi, whose work I'm a big fan of, spoke on the first day, and was incredibly entertaining and inspiring.  

So, perhaps because the weekend is coming and I'm looking forward to getting into the kitchen, or because my brain is wired on all things restaurants at the moment...this little gem caught my eye.  The Beef Bar in Monte Carlo. Designed by the firm Humbert & Poyet, I'm totally loving the mix of luxe materials, the dark moody colour palette and all those little details that make a great restaurant memorable.  I think all of a sudden I'm craving a steak...
