As anyone who has worked even a single shift in a busy restaurant can tell you, a beautiful space will get you just so far. It’s flow and functionality — and the carefully considered details — that enhance comfort and optimize service. When great design facilitates exceptional operations, the stage is set for success.

Those are the kinds of projects we’re after, and what the rd+d awards celebrate.


2018 Award Winners

rd+d’s panel of judges spent an entire day reviewing submissions, taking notes, asking questions, advocating for their favorites and sometimes changing each other’s minds in order to narrow the entries down to these chosen few. Projects were scored based on submission criteria and the judges’ knowledge and experience.

2017 Award Winners

The rd+d awards honor professionals doing great work in restaurant development and design, of course, but they also allow us to get closer to our readers, hear their stories and learn about the projects that make them proud.
