Taavo Somer's ISA Wins 2013 James Beard Award For Design

"I liken my design approach to method acting. I totally immerse myself, lose myself, and become the project…by the end, the project transforms me into something new." It's this approach that won Taavo Somer and his Brooklyn restaurant ISA the 2013 James Beard Award for Restaurant Design and Graphics (75 Seats and Under).
