How to lay a cover
How to lay a cover

  • All cutlery and glassware should be cleaned and polished before they are placed on the table.

  • The main knife and fork should be positioned 1cm from the edge of the table.

Menu from restaurant atmosphere
Menu (from restaurant atmosphere)

PRICING & DESIGNING THE MENU

  • The menu cover and contents should reflect the design and style of the restaurant. The design of the menu, its details, the style of type used, and the impression it creates all set the atmosphere.

  • A small, simple menu in a color that harmonizes with the decor is desirable. It should set the feeling of the restaurant. Customers are not impressed by dirty, dog-eared menus stuck together with adhesive tape.

  • Menus should be simple and easy to read and understand. They should carefully describe the food served. A short but descriptive statement about major items served can stimulate the appetite and measurably increase the guest check. 


Importance of the menu
Importance of the Menu

PRICING & DESIGNING THE MENU

  • First, the menu is a contract with the customer, an indication that what is described on the menu is what will be delivered to the customer. Respect truth in Menu: (freshness, geographical origin, picture, quantity…)

  • Second, the menu is a form of a product brochure. The menu should identify the name of each dish, major ingredients and how the dish is prepared in a appealing way, and without too many unfamiliar items. (the use of complicated names are risky)

  • Third, it is an essential part of the marketing effort. It is the first tangible connection your guests have between their interest in buying (why they are there) and what you have to sell. The menu is a selling tool: properly priced designed, and presented, the menu can increase the average check, the frequency of visits, the party size, or attract new guests. 


Listing prices
Listing Prices

PRICING & DESIGNING THE MENU

  • À la Carte Menu: Food & Beverage items are listed and priced separately. The guest choose from various appetizers, main courses, desserts. For the guest, the initial perception is that prices look low. This approach appeals to customers who like to individualize their meal. It does complicate the pricing of checks for the employees.

  • Table d’Hôte Menu: List of a complete meal (3 to 8 course) for one price. This menu can be called “fixed price” or “meal package”. The guest eats a complete menu that has been planed in advance for them.

  • Combination Menu: some restaurants offers both, Table d’Hôte & À la Carte Menus. (Chinese Restaurants, Fast Food). The guest can compare prices between the meal packages with the à la Carte Menu. 


Menu sequence

PRICING & DESIGNING THE MENU

  • According to western countries and based on the French food culture, a meal include the following courses (maximum 8):

  • 1) cold appetizer 2) soup 3) hot appetizers to 4) Fish5) Sherbet (which is a water ice) 6) Main Course or Entrée 7) Cheese and 8) Dessert.

  • An “À la Carte” or “Table d’Hôte” menu can follow this meal progression. 
