Sound changes a dining experience. Go to the Sujeo noodle bar on East Washington Avenue, and the open kitchen's clatter and bustle suffuses the space. Go to Estrellón on West Johnson Street, and sound gets dampened by the paneling and upholstered furniture to facilitate quiet, intimate conversation.
On this episode of the Corner Table, Lindsay talks with Jake Morrison, the architect and designer behind Sujeo, Estrellón, and a slew of other Madison restaurants, about how he approaches restaurant acoustics. Morrison said it's one of many design elements, from lighting to furniture to color, that can define the vibe of a restaurant.
Check out some of the restaurants that Morrison has worked on:
