Designing The Perfect Menu

Those brand new area rugs and that spiffy dining room paint job might look great, but all customers will remember about your restaurant is the food. Unfortunately, if you design a lackluster menu, your guests might not be tempted to try some of your best dishes. In my twenty years in the restaurant business, I have made some mistakes and had more than a few successes. I want to share the things with you that really work, so that you can enjoy your early days as a restaurant owner. Operating a restaurant is hard, but by heeding the right advice, you can enjoy the journey.


Going Out To Dinner?

Do you want to entertain out-of-town friends or family members by going out to dinner? Perhaps you are part of a group that gets together for a meal every month, and your turn to plan that event is coming up soon. Or, it might just be that you are looking for a new place to take your spouse or the entire family. Whatever the reason that you are eating out, make it a special event. From choosing a hamburger restaurant to eating at an elegant place, here are some ideas that might help you.

A Hamburger Restaurant

Do you know a single person who doesn't love a great hamburger? If so, he or she probably hasn't been to the right restaurant. Think of finding a burger restaurant, like Liberty Burger, that offers an assortment of hamburgers. For example, the restaurant might offer a barbecue burger that has amazing sauce, say a sweet barbecue sauce like you would eat in South Carolina or a spicy one that you might eat in Texas. Or, order a hamburger that brings Hawaii to mind with the addition of pineapple slices and special sweet sauce. Do you want to stick with just a traditional hamburger? If so, order yours with lettuce, tomato, onion, and maybe a pickle, and of course, mayonnaise, mustard, and ketchup. No matter what kind of burger you order, think of getting onion rings and French fries on the side, maybe even a never-ending order where you get seconds, thirds, and even more, if you want them. 

An Elegant Restaurant

Maybe you will be going out to lunch and out to dinner with your out-of-town guests, or if you're on a trip with your family. If so, consider getting hamburgers for one meal and then going to an elegant restaurant for another meal. Consider getting all dressed up for the occasion, just to make it a bit more special. Are you wanting to try something new? If so, consider going to a restaurant that serves Greek food of food from Thailand or Africa. Consider going online to check out menus before you head to an elegant restaurant. Find out ahead of time how much your meal will cost, just so you won't have any unpleasant surprises when the bill is delivered to you. 

Whether you go to an elegant restaurant or to a hamburger restaurant, think of getting dessert somewhere different. For instance, think of checking out one of those places that serves donuts with amazing toppings on them. Going to different places will just make your eating time more fun.
