Restaurants today are changing fast. The demand for line chefs has gone down as the demand for highly-skilled executive chefs has gone up. Restaurant owners have to pay top dollar to attract talented cooks and regularly pass on the high cost to diners. Add in additional costs for real estate, wait staff, and demand for a fresh, seasonal menu, and you have the perfect recipe for a costly dining experience. So how can foodies get reasonably priced fine dining AND explore new food concepts outside a normal restaurant setup?
The answer is home restaurants.
What are Home Restaurants?
The home restaurant scene first launched in San Francisco, California. A chef or home cook hosts these dining experiences in the comfort and privacy of a guest’s home. The host invites one or many friends to join the dining experience, and the chef creates a one-of-a-kind meal tailored to the guests’ taste. Although started in San Francisco, the trend is spreading across the nation. Your company’s next team building dinner or holiday party could very well be a home restaurant event.
Why you or your boss should embrace the home restaurant trend just makes sense. You get to
- avoid a restaurant that’s too “out-of-the-box,”
- try high-end menus without the hassle of reservations, driving, or dealing with parking, and
- pick a menu that is customized and budget friendly.
As an added bonus, your home and friends get to be a part of the whole thing.
Why You’ll Love Them
The home restaurant adds a personal touch to dining that most restaurants or catered events miss. You get to connect with the chef and the food in an intimate way. If you have a question about a dish, you don’t have to wait on a waitress to ask the chef. You get a front row seat to the chef’s mind, and can ask questions along the way. Chefs also get the freedom to make menu suggestions, prepare their favorite dishes, and really involve their guests in the whole cooking process.
These days, foodies like you and me are anxious for more than a great meal. We want to know more about what we eat, and why certain ingredients work well together. The home restaurant gives young professionals and foodies the best of both.
