Denys & von Arend arrived at this look, using simple tiled walls, tinted in an old fashioned pea-green to line the dining area, while behind the counter, the gleam of stainless steel cooking appliances and wipe down splash backs take you on a time travel...

Let us help you get your bearings here: Frankfurt Station is not in a station, nor in fact in Frankfurt. We’re a couple of countries to the West, in Spain, and the Frankfurt is all about the kind of sausages being served up here; it’s a hot dog restaurant. The Station? That’s referring to the look of the place – a 1950s-style travel diner which could be in a train station or in a truck stop, serving up fast food to people who are on a clock, with places to go and connections to be made.

Daniel Perez and Felipe Araujo from design studio Denys & von Arend arrived at this look, using simple tiled walls, tinted in an old fashioned pea-green to line the dining area, while behind the counter, the gleam of stainless steel cooking appliances and wipe down splash backs take you on a time travel. A more modern touch is the inclusion of nice wall graphics, singing the praises of all things hot dog. Frankfurt Station is on Creu Cuberta 35 in Barcelona if you want to avoid sat-nav confusion.
