  33. 33. PRICING & DESIGNING THE MENU Menu (from restaurant atmosphere) The menu cover and contents should reflect the design and style of the restaurant. The design of the menu, its details, the style of type used, and the impression it creates all set the atmosphere. A small, simple menu in a color that harmonizes with the decor is desirable. It should set the feeling of the restaurant. Customers are not impressed by dirty, dog-eared menus stuck together with adhesive tape. Menus should be simple and easy to read and understand. They should carefully describe the food served. A short but descriptive statement about major items served can stimulate the appetite and measurably increase the guest check. 
  34. 34. PRICING & DESIGNING THE MENU Importance of the Menu First, the menu is a contract with the customer, an indication that what is described on the menu is what will be delivered to the customer. Respect truth in Menu: (freshness, geographical origin, picture, quantity…) Second, the menu is a form of a product brochure. The menu should identify the name of each dish, major ingredients and how the dish is prepared in a appealing way, and without too many unfamiliar items. (the use of complicated names are risky) Third, it is an essential part of the marketing effort. It is the first tangible connection your guests have between their interest in buying (why they are there) and what you have to sell. The menu is a selling tool: properly priced designed, and presented, the menu can increase the average check, the frequency of visits, the party size, or attract new guests. 
  35. 35. PRICING & DESIGNING THE MENU Listing Prices À la Carte Menu: Food & Beverage items are listed and priced separately. The guest choose from various appetizers, main courses, desserts. For the guest, the initial perception is that prices look low. This approach appeals to customers who like to individualize their meal. It does complicate the pricing of checks for the employees. Table d’Hôte Menu: List of a complete meal (3 to 8 course) for one price. This menu can be called “fixed price” or “meal package”. The guest eats a complete menu that has been planed in advance for them. Combination Menu: some restaurants offers both, Table d’Hôte & À la Carte Menus. (Chinese Restaurants, Fast Food). The guest can compare prices between the meal packages with the à la Carte Menu. 
  36. 36. PRICING & DESIGNING THE MENU Menu Sequence According to western countries and based on the French food culture, a meal include the following courses (maximum 8): 1) cold appetizer 2) soup 3) hot appetizers to 4) Fish 5) Sherbet (which is a water ice) 6) Main Course or Entrée 7) Cheese and 8) Dessert. An “À la Carte” or “Table d’Hôte” menu can follow this meal progression. 
