Hey guys, just looking for a bit of feedback on new restaurant idea here in Berlin
Hey all, I am currently living in Berlin as a personal chef and have many years in the restaurant industry all over the world and recent events has meant investment in me to open a restaurant here in Berlin! Through talking with friends and family and obviously the investor I am getting some very good feedback, but think it is important to gain feedback from people who are essentially my customers!
The restaurant would be set In the heart of Berlin in a very busy and fairly hipster area surrounded by interesting people, beautiful landmarks and funky art! It would be fairly small and minimilistic with a lovely outdoor area (as here in Berlin majority of people love to enjoy there meals outside)
Out here in Berlin the two things I have noticed about food offering here is it is very international- ie you can get Italian, Turkish, Japanese on the same road. And that people here in Berlin love to socialise and take there time at restaurants over a few glasses of wine! Tapas bars for example do very well in the way everyone shares food and can keep going back for more!
So the price range would be affordable but maybe a little more expensive than the average as would emphasise of fresh local produce and BIO produce which is also massive out here!
So based on this I would like to offer Sharing Platters from around the world as well as a set menu, for example: Moroccan would include- lamb koftas, chicken kebabs, safron chickpeas, charred harrisa ciabatta and dips such as avacado Cream and minted yogurt! Or Greek: Greek chicken, dolmados (meatballs) stuffed vine leaves, zucchini fritters, houmas, tzatziki, Greek salad, olives and breads and oils! There are several different menus from around the world but I guess you get the idea. They will be available in a variety of different sizes and will all be served as beautiful sharing platters that have the wow factor!
Would really appreciate any feedback... Anything that comes to mind really! Thanks in advance Pete
