Restaurant Design

Mystery is a specialist restaurant design studio. Founded in 1998, our restaurant designers have helped conceive and develop over 70 successful food and beverage concepts in different markets and territories around the world.

Having co-ventured a portfolio of businesses, including the hugely successful Bubbleology and even launched our own restaurant concept, Dub Jam, in London's Covent Garden, we have gained first hand operational experience, which means we really understand the importance of ROI (rather than simply paying lip-service to it).

Working with multi-brand, multi-site operators and with independent owner-operator entrepreneurs, we have a clearly defined strategic methodology that produces a compelling vision for each restaurant concept we work on. Our aim is simple: to help define and create unique and engaging propositions that customers fall in love with.

Our restaurant design portfolio includes the new Hal's Bar & Grill in Palya Vista, Bokan, a fine-dining rooftop destination and Za Za Bazaar,  the largest food hall in the UK. Click 'PROJECTS' at the top of this page to see a list of case-studies.

“Working with Mystery has been so worthwhile. Dan helped us define and articulate exactly what has made Hal’s so popular over the years and how we should evolve for the next chapter of our story in Playa Vista. Many of our customers have told us how much they love the new design, a familiar home-from-home for some and a cool new local hangout for others. Having a clear vision for our brand has meant the design came together beautifully.”
Don Novack - Co-founder, Hal's Bar & Grill,


Turn Key Solutions

We believe that successful restaurants have a clearly defined and communicated Vision at the center of their business, ensuring coherent decision-making across the entire organisation, delivering an outstanding brand experience for the customers. Having worked in hospitality for over 20 years, Mystery has a powerful network of strategic partners including chefs, operations, recruitment/training, legal, property and marketing consultants, many of whom have owned their own restaurant/s and who share our vision-centric philosophy, with whom we offer a Turn-Key solution for owners wishing to develop a successful restaurant business.

Restaurant Menu Design

We believe in the importance of navigation, clarity and brand tone-of-voice in a printed menu and understand that these elements play a significant role in the overall brand experience and help drive sales and profitability by focussing attention on higher-margin products.

We also work with highly experienced chefs and menu developers to create food propositions that are aligned with the strategic vision, ensuring that the food and beverage menus are not only enticing and consistent with the brand concept, but also deliverable and implementable by the culinary team.

Our branding and design expertise, combined with our operational experience, means we can define your unique brand personality to produce innovative and successful solutions to drive sales for your business, creating a customer experience that becomes the benchmark for others.
