Ingredient-Driven Design

Diners are becoming more conscious about what they eat, and they expect their restaurants to follow suit. With people requesting more vegetables, less gluten, and less processed foods, restaurant kitchens need to evolve. Restaurants can take this evolution one step further by including ingredient-driven design in their dining rooms.

Visible ingredients in counters or class refrigerators, calorie counts on menus, and food prepared in front of guests are all ways you can incorporate this ingredient-driven design.

Sustainable Design

Similar to how diners are becoming more conscious about what they eat, they are also becoming more conscious about sustainability in terms of dining. Letting restaurant guests know where their food is coming from, how “green” a restaurant is, or if their menus are made from recycled paper, are going to be bonus points in their eyes. Utilize sustainable resources and ingredients whenever possible to have a restaurant that not only looks good, but does good.
