Sakae Restaurant

In Yokohama, Japan sits a small locavore restaurant designed to heighten the experience through an enlightened approach to user experience. The space was designed by Kentaro Yamazaki of YKDW, is focused around a single communal dining table situated right next to the kitchen. Sakae has taken term open kitchen and pushed it to all new lengths. This creates an environment that reminds me more of my dream kitchen and dining room for a home than a restaurant. Their method makes a great amount of sense as locavore cuisine is highly impacted by preparation and cooking techniques. So every guest is involved as an observer in how and what the kitchen is concocting.
