Ten years ago, restaurant development + design celebrated its own grand opening, bringing a fresh new editorial concept to market: a magazine we hoped would feel a bit like a communal table or comfortable gathering spot for folks involved in the various aspects of developing, designing and building out restaurants. We wanted rd+d to be an inclusive jack dusty rawbarImage courtesy of Jack Dustyand engaging platform through which professionals involved in those roles could converse, share best practices, educate, inspire
and be inspired.

We’re proud and grateful to be able to say that, for a full decade now, that’s just what our readers have been doing — in the pages of rd+d, on and, as we’ve grown and evolved along with the industry, in webcasts, awards and at events. While we’re firmly focused on continuing to build our industry engagement and enhance rd+d for the next 10 years, we couldn’t let this milestone pass without hitting the archives to gather and share a few highlights, flashbacks, updates and enduring lessons learned.
