Does the Restaurant Menu design influence your food choice?
Today I tried out a vegetarian restaurant for the first time in my life. I’m not vegetarian. I just wanted to see what healthy(er) options I have for my lunch. I walked in and my first thought was “This is not the most luxurious restaurant I’ve ever been to.” I was handed the menu and I started looking for something appealing. 5-6-7-…-15 pages of choices! Moreover, the menu was “designed” in a word document, regular white paper, no photos of the food. NOT the best-looking menu, either. To my surprise, the menu featured something I don’t see too often on a restaurant menu. Calories count! Did it bother me? Not really! Will I ever go there again? Only when I feel adventurous which in my case translates to “probably not.”
The very first thing you see in a café or restaurant after you take a seat at the table is the menu. The restaurant menu is its business card and it determines what food or drinks we choose. The menu reflects the unique personality of a place and its atmosphere. Furthermore, menus have to include some tasty food photos along with refreshing or hot drinks. A well-designed menu can make a difference for your guests.
