O.NOIR – Montreal, Canada
This restaurant is the epitome of “open your mouth and close your eyes.” O.NOIR, a restaurant in Montreal, Canada, pioneered the “Dining in the Dark” movement. The logic of this trend is the experience of eating using only our sense of taste. The dining rooms are all dark, and your only focus is on the food on your plate. The founder of the place, Moe Alameddine, summarizes this trend as follows; “When you eat in the dark, your senses work better at detecting the smell and taste. Even the products we eat every day, such as potato and yogurt, give a different taste.”
Hospitalist Restaurant – Depok, Indonesia
Here we are witnessing a service with no borders. In this interesting hospital-themed restaurant, all the staff, from the waiters to the cook, dress like doctors and nurses. While we eat with surgical tools instead of the forks and knives we use every day, what draws great attention is the food on our plates resembling real organs. Drinks are also served in serum and test tubes, but that’s not the weirdest part. Some customers are dressed in aprons and fed by service personnel. Who we are to mention borders now?
These concepts may not suit every business, or circumstances may not allow it to be so creative. The key point of a successful business is to find a theme to differentiate yourself from your competitors. Although your restaurant, bar, or café has an attractive concept, it is helpful to prioritize service quality. In order to achieve this, you need a qualified restaurant/cafe management system. Otherwise, how can you provide the highest quality service to many customers? Reservation management that you can follow instantly and is integrated into the POS system is among the features that will make your business stand out. How do we know? Because if you take a look at the restaurants listed above, you can see that order speed and customer experience are prioritized in the comments. Even if you own the most interesting business in the world, you should review your management system if you are compromising on the quality of service.
