C100B EDITORS PRESENTED OUR SHORTLIST OF EXCEPTIONAL CANDIDATES FOR BEST NEW RESTAURANT DESIGN from our 2022 Top 100 list to a consultant panel of restaurant design experts. This included Alessandro Munge of Studio Munge (BSK Speakeasy at Muir, Halifax; Joni and Writers Room at Park Hyatt Toronto), Anwar Mekhayech of DesignAgency (Minami Toronto; Carversteak at Resorts World Las Vegas) and Zébulon Perron (Marcus at Four Seasons Montreal; Drake Underground, Toronto).
They swiftly picked a winner: GUIDO COSTANTINO’S OSTERIA GIULIA.
In their words, these are some of the reasons.
Giulia is a great spot and deserving of this award.”
The underlying order and material restraint contribute to creating a serene atmosphere.”
The attention to detail mixed with layered geometric shape and the simplicity of form captures a calmness for me that embodies their style. Elegant and functional. Classic materials of limestone and (I presume) white oak give it that Scandinavian- meets-Japanese structure. It’s a beautifully crafted space.”
