Creating a Gourmet vs Homestyle Bar Menu

Homestyle ChipsBoth gourmet food and home-style food have their charming points. Which one you want to go with for your own menu relies on a few factors that we will cover later. They also have their own disadvantages as well so we will be talking about them too. However if you do not offer any sort of food at your bar we would urge you to have something on the menu. It is a great way to make money and make your customers happy as well in the long run.

We can give you many examples of both styles of bar flourishing and making people happy. That is not what is up for debate here. Instead we want to talk about how you can decide, along with your customers, what is best for everyone. One is not simply better than the other and you should avoid the advice of anyone who says it is. Unless of course all your customers prefer one over the other, that is.

Choosing Outdoor Bar Stools between these styles is very important. Depending on what food you are going to be serving you will either need a very high-class look or a very relaxed look to them. So you will either be going with home-style or ultra-modern. Once you buy one you will probably not want to buy a bunch in the other style to fix everything so be sure to get the right ones.

This is easier to do if you are just starting out. If you have an established reputation already then you may want to just not bother with changing it. While it may be easy to change what you are serving it is much harder to change what people think of your food and drinks once you have a reputation. For your own sake we hope that your current reputation is good. If you are just starting out do not be afraid to change everything if it turns out one way is not working.

You should certainly look at the surrounding area and economic demographics before picking one of these for your outdoor furniture setting. This will give you a good idea of what people are looking for. Attend meetings around the town and find out what everyone wants. Get their casual comments so that you can get some idea of how everyone feels. In this way you can get a good idea of what the surrounding area wants when they go out.

Cost is another factor for each of these menus. While you would think that one costs less that isn’t always the case. You can make a home-style meal out of fully organic ingredients and a gourmet meal that isn’t made with the freshest items. The quality you want to put out will be a big factor on what sort of crowd you draw. Look at the costs and see just what you want to use for all your ingredients in general. The chef is another big factor so look for one who can do their best no matter what they use.
