“The best restaurant designs are made up of large decisions and lots of tiny details. But ultimately, what comes from long experience, Danny’s and mine, involves what I’d call ‘in between’ things: Designing for when a restaurant isn’t full.

Designing spaces so people want to explore the room because a restaurant shouldn’t be a one-liner,” said Mr. Rockwell.
