CityLAB Fall 2020
How Do Restaurants Redesign to Survive & Thrive under COVID?
Restuarants Reimagined Research
The CityLAB participants spent 3 weeks researching the challenges that restaurants face during the pandemic in NYC, and how restaurants anchor neighborhoods. They came to understand the importance of dining to the city culture and economy, and the challenges that owners, managers and workers face everyday.
Outdoor Dining Design Project
The CityLAB participants worked with architects at LEROY STREET STUDIO and the Delicious Hospitality Group to design outdoor dining pavilions that would respond to concerns during the pandemic, accommodate the emerging city regulations, and inspire diners to return to an inviting, safe and beautiful dining experience.
