On today's THE FOOD SEEN, we talk with Tara Oxley, Design Director of BR Guest Hospitality, which include such hits as Dos Caminos, Bill's Bar & Burger, and Wildwood BBQ. Hear how she interprets her sense of smell and taste into the visual identity of a restaurant space, using many of her favorite certified green materials, reclaimed, recycled, and environmentally friendly. It's not all stainless steel, you know... Thanks to our sponsor, BluePrint Cleanse. THE FOOD SEEN's theme music is courtesy of Cookies.


"I think if you don't bring a little bit of 'the modern' into design, it doesn't stay current." [12:35]

"There are some building where the form outweighs the function, but in hospitality design, you have to completely marry the two." [19:15]
