The paper "Decision-Making Regarding Menu in the Restaurant" is a perfect example of a management essay. The manner in which the food industry has grown and spread of pop up restaurants which are specifically designed and works on a designated theme has changed the manner in which the food industry use to work. This has made restaurants lay special emphasis on designing their menu and ensuring that they are able to provide variety and different options for the customers to choose from. This paper looks to present the manner in which a pop-up restaurant which is going to hold an event in the redevelopment of an inner-city dockland area in a regional Australian city for cultural stuff.
This paper explores the different dimensions which have been looked while designing the food menu and the different philosophy which has undergone the same. The paper then provides the complete menu and further goes to show the manner in which it will help to satisfy customers. Theme of Restaurant The pop-up restaurant looks towards providing the customer with extra items to choose from so that the pleasure of the customer while having food can be enhanced.
The fact that the restaurant is going to be set up for an event in the redevelopment of an inner-city dockland area in a regional Australian city for cultural stuff. This has made the management look into the fact and based on it develop a menu so that the customers are served with different cuisines at the same time and have looked towards developing ways to match the cultural requirements (Binkley, 2006). Further, while drafting the menu special care has been given to ensure that the quality of food served matches the requirements of the customers expected to visit the place. In addition, the emphasis has been placed in the kitchen area and also the space available for the customers to sit and have their food.
Special care has been made to ensure that the items chosen in the menu can be prepared within the allocated space and time constraints as people visiting the show will look at quick service (Monsivais & Drewnowski, 2007).
