Would anyone be able to tell me if there are particular magazines that highlight the latest in any aspects of cafe/small restaurant design (e.g. interior design; menu) or are favorites of those involved in starting up such places? Preferably ones with lots of photographs.

Thanks all.

    There is another, I think it's called "Hospitality Design"? We get it at our office (architectural) but tend to take a quick look and toss because it's not our specialty. Nice little mag - not a thick book, but does feature what you're looking for.

      Food Arts usually has a design section each month, with a restaurant or cafe shown, along with the list of appliances, cost of fixtures etc.

        Thanks both of you! This will be helpful.

          I'm not aware of one that focuses specifically on restaurant design, but these publications often have articles on the subject:

            Yes, Interior Design usually has pretty detailed articles. I went to school to be an Interior Designer, and we used Interior Design magazine a lot when we designed our restaurant.
