Restaurant Tips and Best Practices
As an independent restaurant, one of the best ways to keep customers coming back for more is to offer them something that’s both delicious and unique. This is how you create signature dishes—and it may be easier than you think.
To thrive and grow as an independent restaurant, you’ve got to make yourself known for a few things: your menu, your ambiance and the outstanding service your team provides.
Independent restaurants are known for their exceptional food, and a lot of effort typically goes into the centre of the plate. However, the most successful establishments know that to really set yourself apart from the competition, every bite on the plate has to be phenomenal—including your sides, sauces and even your garnishes.
