Design Museum Boston is introducing local diners to artistic dining here in Boston’s Downtown Crossing. It’s a fascinating art exhibit that makes going out to dinner a creative endeavor. Their Design for Dining program kicked off this summer with an interactive experience featuring seven restaurant collaborations that showcase how designers shape the dining experience – from a restaurant’s vision to the completed dining experience. Guests can reserve a table vignette and enjoy these one-off dining experiences. Here at Merchant, Payette considered the act of dining as a social activity and created vignettes that engage three scales of community – the neighborhood to the restaurant, the restaurant to the table and the table to the diner. Dirty Water TV Reporter Julie Dawson experience the artistic side of dining here at Merchant and provides more detail.
