2017's Most Instagram-Worthy New Restaurants

In the age of smart phones and professional cameras going mainstream, Instagram and blogs have become the new media. With that in mind, restaurants have had to rethink their design and even dish presentation, since more people walking into their dining rooms means more people taking snapshots and putting it out onto World Wide Web.

We compiled the top most Instagrammable restaurants that have opened across the nation in 2017. 

Mattie’s – Austin, Texas

Named after one of the property’s original owners, Martha “Mattie” Miner Faulk, Mattie’s is located inside a large, historical Austin home. After an extensive 13-month restoration, the estate now features an ambiance of Southern comfort with a hint of rebellion. The interior boasts dark wooden structures, dainty, brass-adorned furniture and large lounging sofas and chairs, creating an inviting atmosphere. Historical family artifacts are strewn throughout the property, including portraits, art and furnishings, and finally, legendary peacocks wandering the grounds outside make this spot ultra Instagrammable.

Toulouse Café and Bar  Austin, TX

Toulouse Café and Bar is a French concept styled after the many bistros found along the cobblestone streets of Paris. Accordion wooden doors with beveled glass, open to the patio and main lawn. Black and white hexagonal tile with pattern inlay covers the patio floor, with deep green wooden paneling lining the walls for that bistro atmosphere. The woven bentwood café chairs were imported from Paris for a touch of authenticity. 

Rosaliné – West Hollywood, CA

Rosaliné was designed to provide the ambience of dining outdoors through the installation of a greenhouse with skylight panels, open ceiling, and storefront. You'll want to be sure to have your camera handy as you walk in and see Rosaliné's community dining and ceviche bar designed with wood tones, rustic flooring, tile pattern, pendant lighting, and living plants.

Henley – Nashville, Tennessee

The space draws guests in as colors and textures transition from light to dark while moving from the bright and breezy patio for al fresco dining to the hushed and moody Snooker in the back. Rich textures and elegant custom furniture complement the contemporary  dining space where wooden farm tables and leather banquettes stand in contrast to the black and white tile. Snapshots of the bold florals and cool colors  will also give all of your friends major FOMO.

Jane Q – Hollywood, CA

With wood flooring, contemporary light fixtures and floor-to-ceiling glass windows, Jane Q captures L.A.’s modern take on European sidewalk dining. The focal point of the airy, white subway-tiled space is the open kitchen, which features a custom, imported Italian rotating-deck pizza oven. With seating of light blue and wood barstools along a zinc counter, a communal white Carrera marble bar with stools at the center of the space.

Water Grill  Dallas, TX

The Dallas restaurant occupies a 7,500-sqaure-foot ground floor space including an exhibition kitchen, sea water tanks that display a seasonal assortment of live shellfish, and a 2,000-square-foot patio with a retractable roof. The restaurant’s interior takes inspiration from a refurbished ship, incorporating woods reclaimed from 100-year-old barns - can you say Instagram(drool)-worhty?

Ever Bar – Hollywood, CA

Effortlessly cool, refined yet casual, Ever Bar is Hollywood’s newest neighborhood hangout. The large, airy space blends eclectic and mid-century modern furnishings with laid back ease, transporting guests to their home away from home. Featuring 28-foot ceilings, Ever Bar’s 12-seat bar and 80-seat lounge area includes a pool table and semi-private “library” off of the main room.

La Panadería  San Antonio, TX

La Panadería is located in a historic building in downtown San Antonio, just minutes away from the city’s famous Majestic Theater and River Walk.  The photo-friendly space was designed by Clayton & Little Architects and features warm wood tones and exposed brick, accented by soft leather seating, vintage honeycomb tiling, and mid-century modern lighting. Beautiful potted succulents, antique cooking gadgets and black and white images of panadero’s finish out the bright and inviting space.
