Stephen Francis Jones is the principal of SF Jones Architects, a unique firm that has turned architectural design of restaurants into something that is nothing short of an art form. I don’t use that term lightly, and as you will hear, Jones doesn’t either. As the in-house architect for Wolfgang Puck, he helped set the tone for the dining experience that led to a very successful, global brand. His objective is to create an environment that matches the food, the sensory experience that serves to enhance the dining experience. Restaurant design and architecture is Jones stated “true calling” and his work is evident of that. Think about this for a moment… the elements that go into designing a space that must accommodate professional grade appliances, satisfy local, regional and state codes AND provide an environment that matches the expected dining experience. As complicated as that sounds, listen to Stephen explain how he does it. His laid-back style seems to pair beautifully with the notoriously intense style and expectations of the service industry. This is Stephen Francis Jones of SF Jones Architects.
