Block 16

One more example of how restaurant sites are finally getting facelifts – love this one that Grain & Mortar did for Block 16 out of Omaha, Nebraska.

As an aside – restaurant websites have always been horrible (here’s my 2nd site I ever made for a restaurant franchise that I was a franchisee for – to be fair, I was a restaurant owner at the time, not a designer, or whatever I am now… Also note, Chrome wasn’t around then, so I see browser compatibility may be an issue with that site..). So again, I’m glad to see the design industry help the restaurant industry more.

Anyway – My job is easier when the designer points out the highlights of the site:

From the Designer: Grain & Mortar created a visually rich and playful site for Block 16 — a farm to table restaurant in Omaha, Nebraska. Our favorite features include the open/closed functionality in the navigation bar to accommodate Block 16’s slightly irregular hours, the integrated Facebook feed to showcase their amazing daily specials, and the mouth-watering videos that loop throughout the site.

We all know that the basic structure of any website is created using HTML, and the design and layout are managed through CSS. But what about making the site an interactive and engaging experience for users?
