Concept: The door is a one-way mirror; you can look out, but diners can’t see in.
Privacy: Flip the bird to anyone who approaches the door and tries to push it open. They won’t see.
Amenities: Ceiling speakers, an illuminated Buddha backed by infinity mirrors, and a video screen over the sink.
Drawbacks: The doors are inconveniently wedged between diners’ tables.
Strategy: We’re not saying to make creative use of the sink so you don’t miss any of the movie, but
Concept: Byzantine delicateness via slate walls and gilded foil trim.
Privacy: A transparent strip at the top of the frosted-glass door means you spend your entire toilet time worrying Xiao Ming will walk by.
Amenities: The sink's faucet and toggle project from a mirrored wall. And ceiling speakers, natch.
Drawbacks: Inconvenient placement at the end of the narrow restaurant and near the kitchen.
Strategy: The oval basin looks a lot like a toilet lid. Don’t try to pick it up — you break it, you bought it.
