from the editor a fare to remember STACY SHOEMAKER RAUEN < Editor in Chief stacy.shoemaker@emeraldexpo.com 646.668.3751 MICHAEL ADAMS < Editorial Director michael.adams@emeraldexpo.com 646.668.3690 JONATHAN MARSLAND < Creative Director jonathan.marsland@emeraldexpo.com 646.668.3733 Photo by JEFFREY MOSIER Each year, the fine dining category is one of the most popular in our annual HD Awards. For the past few years, it has also been one of the most challenging. The reason: as more high-end restaurants do away with white tablecloths and other traditional formalities, the line between upscale and casual dining-at least in terms of design-continues to be blurred, forcing the judges to stop and ask, "Is this fine dining?" Because each project is anonymous, we confirm price point and assure them that it fits the criteria, but the dialogue continues. (They even made a separate category, fine dining redefined, for one restaurant-the Grey in Savannah-this year.) The question is, does the less formal design create an authentic, memorable, standout experience that still warrants the price point? Because in the end, an experience is what guests want today. So when working on this, our annual Restaurant Issue, we tried to show a variety of experiences-from a futuristic look in Vegas to an at-home feel for a pizza joint in Paris; from high-end to fast-casual standouts, the latter of which, including a food court in Australia and a noodle shop in China, are raising the bar in terms of design. It seems as though no matter what end of the spectrum a restaurant falls on, the design's main job is to highlight and complement the chef's cuisine. We sat down with eight innovative chefs- James Beard honorees, Food & Wine magazinecelebrated, who together have worked for a who's who of kitchen masters-to gain insight on how they got their start, lessons learned, food philosophies, and, of course, their thoughts on the importance of design. Arguably one of the industry's most prolific chefs, known only by his first name, Nobu, happens to be one of our 2015 Platinum Circle Awards honorees, who are showcased starting on page 121. He, along with Gary Dollens of Hyatt Hotels and Kemper Hyers of Starwood Capital, are being inducted into our most prestigious group for their astounding career achievements, and we are awarding design giant HBA with our HD Visionary Award for 50 years of innovation. We hope you can help us fĂȘte them at a black tie gala on November 10th at the Conrad New York (for tickets, visit hdplatinumcircle.com). It is sure to be an evening to remember.
