RE: Menu Items
A restaurent is a business. after all it's the bottom line that lets you come back and try something new.
I had a restaurent for 13 years that was very successful, and we used a gaint calkboard as a menu that i chaged as other as every week if something didn't sell. I always like to try new stuff esecially when an ingredient was in season are at a good market pric.e
I found that the only way to make it work was to take off tems that where popular but unprofiable. Then people felt as if they had to choose something else.
i had a really stong reputation and dazzling reveiw that allowed me to do this. I always offered customers a bite of something when they first sat, pates,bread, homemake butter...something.
regardless if this was a good business decision it the way I wanted to opperate so I was luckey
