I'm looking for a good slab serif with an open and modern feeling, with boxy slabs, and a low stroke contrast. It's for a restaurant, for display/title/subhead use, but not body copy. I think I've settled on...
Or can you suggest something better? I've looked at Serifa and Beton, and of course Clarendon.
Rockwell (but it's badly kerned) is also similar.
Lubalin or Memphis
Actually, no, second one. :)
We can't give you good advice without knowing something about the restaurant. Who are they? What is their clientele? What does the decor look like? How do they want to distinguish themselves?
I've used Caecilia fairly extensively for one of my clients. I don't really have any complaints, plenty of weights and the italics are nice. Stymie is a little too geometric for my taste.
Typog: Modern international cuisine (all hand food), locally sourced/supplied, pushing the green angle (biodegradable this and that), lots of stainless steel... they're just starting up.

Client has decided on Caecilia. Thanks all.
