Types of restaurants |Restaurants |Hospitality industry!
Various types of restaurant fall into several industry classifications based upon menu style, preparation methods and pricing. Additionally, how the food is served to the customer helps to determine the classification.
Historically, restaurant referred only to places that provided tables where one sat down to eat the meal, typically served by a waiter. Following the rise of fast food and take-out restaurants, a retronym for the older “standard” restaurant was created.
Sit-down restaurant. Most commonly, “sit-down restaurant” refers to a casual dining restaurant with table service, rather than a fast food restaurant or a ” dinner”, where one orders food at a counter. ( family – style or formal and casual dining)
TYPES OF RESTAURANTS ;
* FAST FOOD
fast food restaurant emphasis speed of service. Operations range from small-scale street vendors with carts.
* FAST CASUAL
fast casual restaurants usually do not offer full table service. But may offer non-disposable plates and cutlery. The quality of food and prices tend to be higher than those of a conventional fast food restaurant but maybe lower than casual dining.
* CASUAL DINING
A casual dining restaurant is a restaurant that serves moderately-priced food in a casual atmosphere. Except for buffet-style restaurants.
* FINE DINING
fine dining restaurants are full service restaurants with specific dedicated meal courses. Decor of such restaurants feature higher-quality desired.
* BRASSERIE AND BISTRO
A brasserie in the US has evolved from the original French idea to a type of restaurant serving moderately priced hearty meals- French-inspired “comfort foods” in an unpretentious setting.
Bistros in the US usually have more refined decor, fewer tables, finer foods and higher prices. (when used in English, the term bistro usually indicates a continental menu).
Cafés are informal reservations offering a range of hot meals and made-to-order sandwiches. coffee shops, while similar to cafes, are not restaurants due to the fact that they primarily serve and derive the majority of their revenue from hot drinks. Many cafes are open for breakfast and serve full hot breakfast.
A cafeteria is a restaurant serving ready-cooked food arranged behind a food-serving counter. There is little or no table service.
Most of these establishments can be considered subtypes of fast casual dining restaurants or casual dining restaurants.
Big thanks to you all, I wish you a happy ending and new year.
