The third annual rd+d awards celebrate our readers’ accomplishments. rd+d strives to be a reader-driven resource, shining the spotlight on best-in-class projects and case studies. The awards highlight and celebrate excellence in the restaurant development and design communities. A big thank you to everyone who took the time to submit.

An increasingly experienced panel of judges reviewed a record number of entries. The judges spent the entire day carefully considering how each project submission matched up to the criteria, and, ultimately, advocating for their favorite entries. One judge even called one of the restaurants to clarify a point about their service style! A big thank you to the panelists for their hard work and dedication in making these awards possible.
