Austin Restaurant Rips Off Alinea Menu Design

New, 2 comments

Alinea-Afin-menu-sm.jpgUh oh, it looks like another restaurant is ripping off Alinea. Back in March, a Miami catering company featured pictures of Alinea's food on its website as their own. Now Austin sushi spot Afin Modern Japanese Tapas Bar is using the Martin Kastner-designed Alinea menu as, uh, inspiration for its own menu, which is printed on their website. Alinea co-owner Nick Kokonas commented that they are very "open source" in their creative process, but that blatantly ripping off their design is just wrong. "I wonder if it is the restaurant or the graphic designer that has no ethical compass." [Eater Austin]
