50 Decor-Over-Dishes Eateries

These One-of-a-Kind Restaurants are Serving up Style

— June 11, 2010 — Art & Design
As many of you do, I love to eat. But sometimes, I do go to a restaurant for reasons other than the food. This cluster of one-of-a-kind restaurants that focus on decor over dishes, fits that bill.

What to order will always be an afterthought at a robot-run restaurant or a toilet-themed restaurant. There are also prison-themed eateries and restaurants where you dine in the dark. When it comes to one-of-a-kind restaurants, these featured eateries are serving up style.
