Architecture & Interiors
Bon Appetit magazine has just released its “Best New Restaurants in America in 2011” list and as you can imagine, some of the best new restaurants in America with tasty food also happen to boast pretty stylin’ interiors. The first one that caught our eye in the list is a new spot in Austin, Texas called Congress. It’s housed in one of the new condominium buildings in downtown Austin right off South Congress Avenue, and the designer’s decision to put a lot of big windows up front is the perfect thing to be able to spot all kinds of folks strolling past. The interior is modern and grown-up with a nice warm, masculine color palette. We like those over-sized lighting fixtures and the unique furniture pieces chosen. More here.
