February 28 2013 – Robert Fiumara
When considering the fine dining experience, a restaurant is able to offer something to appeal to each one of their diner’s senses. The well-prepared meal appeals to a diner’s sense of taste. Their sense of smell is piqued by the mouth watering aromas coming from the kitchen. Many chefs know that a diner eats with their eyes as much as their mouths, so a lot of work goes into the presentation of each plate. However, many restaurant owners do not think to put the same amount of care and effort into their restaurant décor.
Nothing can ruin a dining experience quite like tacky or ill designed décor. A restaurant’s décor is not just the artwork on the walls or the type of plates that are used. Décor is everything from the ground up including the appearance of the front of house and kitchen staff. When little thought it put into the décor of a restaurant, it says that the owner doesn’t care about that, so why should they care about their customers.
Many restaurant owners do not intend to send this kind of message, that’s why shows like The Food Network’s Restaurant Impossible are so popular. Professional chef and successful restaurateur, Robert Irvine helps failing establishments get back on their feet by taking a look at what is really bringing them down.
