HuffPo Talks "Decadent Minimalism" With Larry McGuire

Chef and entrepreneur Larry McGuire is starting to be the apple of the country’s eye. Today a story on the Huffington Post details McGuire’s aesthetic and architectural taste through his relationship with design company FÖDA studio.

The Post says:

Even when not every plate is perfect, it's fun to be there and their signature style has seemingly cracked the code on creating an "it" factor, thanks in large part to the vision realized through FÖDA Studio.

The story examines each McGuire restaurant and reveals the design ideas behind each. Overall the theme is “decadent minimalism,” but specifically, Lambert’s is “fancy BBQ,” Perla’s at one time was “Martha’s Vineyard meets Cabo San Lucas” and Elizabeth Street Café is “Hanoi 1920” and “grandma chic.”

FÖDA studio recently designed Chef Rene Ortiz’s Sway, and of course McGuire’s new Jeffrey’s and Josephine House.

How would you describe the décor of those spots? Tell us in the comments below, the more over the top the better.
