How customer recommendations can help restaurants succeed

How customer recommendations can help restaurants succeed | Restaurant Tips and Management | Scoop.it

If you own or operate a restaurant, you’re probably hungry for more positive reviews on Yelp, Urbanspoon and other sites. A new study by Michael Luca, a Harvard Business School assistant professor, shows exactly how positive reviews on Yelp impact restaurant sales. According to the study, each star rating on Yelp translated to anywhere from a 5 to 9% increase in revenues for restaurants. In other words, for a restaurant that does $1 million a year in business, increasing its Yelp ...

More than 8,800 bottles from the cellar of chef Ferran Adrià's acclaimed Catalan restaurant to be sold by Sotheby's.

More than 8,800 bottles of wines from the cellar of Spain's world-renowned elBulli restaurant will be auctioned in Hong Kong and New York next April in sales that may exceed $1m (£624,000), Sotheby's said on Wednesday.

The award-winning restaurant near Roses, in Calalonia, which has been headed by celebrated the chef Ferran Adrià for 27 years, was regarded by many as the best restaurant in the world. Before it closed last year to make way for the elBulli Foundation "creativity centre", which will open in 2014, the restaurant had earned three Michelin stars and many other accolades for its gastronomic inventions.

Calories on Restaurant Menus Won't Make Us Eat Less -- But Here's One Thing That Might - Forbes

Calories on Restaurant Menus Won't Make Us Eat Less -- But Here's One Thing That Might - Forbes | Restaurant Tips and Management | Scoop.it

Photo credit: Wikipedia After much foot-dragging by the restaurant industry, a new rule requiring chain restaurants display calorie counts on their menus is taking effect in the latter half of this year.

 

In January I posted an article from the Huffington Post about the launch of "Halfsies" and now it appears to be taking action! Restaurant chains are being forced to display caloric contents of food but this doesn't mean customers will necessarily eat less. "Halfsies" can partner with these restaurants and they will then only serve 1/2 of the portion of food for the same price. Then, the restaurant remits the savings from serving less food to "Halfsies", which donates it 60 percent to local hunger charities and 40 percent to global food relief organizations.

 

Diners still indulge but eat less and can feel good about the charitable donation they're making - win win overall.

At a time when technology and food are rapidly becoming intertwined, New York City’s MONO+MONO stands out as a unique bar and restaurant that is throwing back to an earlier time of scientific know-how. On December 1, this Korean eatery will premiere its menu on 3-D View-Masters (pictured above). While other restaurants are offering their menus on apps and iPads, owner M.J. Chung (above) says that his Korean restaurant is “proudly old-school.” M.J.’s impressive collection of View-Masters showcase beautifully photographed images of MONO+MONO’s nightly specials (Garlic Soy fried Chicken, anyone?). If the menu, which features delicate crispy beef buns and Korean fried chicken, is not tempting enough on its own, seeing it in 3-D will surely push you over the edge....

Battle lines drawn over 'growth revenue' in U.S. fiscal cliff talks

Battle lines drawn over 'growth revenue' in U.S. fiscal cliff talks | Restaurant Tips and Management | Scoop.it

by DAVID LAWDER (Reuters)

 

The holy grail of conservative tax policy - the theory that lower tax rates will generate stronger revenues by turbo-charging economic growth - has sprung back to life and is stirring controversy again in Washington.

 

The so-called "dynamic scoring" theory, disputed by many independent economists, has formed the basis of Republicans' defensive line on negotiations over the year-end "fiscal cliff" of looming tax hikes and automatic spending cuts.

 

They have put new revenues on the table, but not any that come from Americans paying more in taxes. Instead, what Republicans in the House of Representatives are offering is new revenue generated by a cleaner, simpler tax code, with fewer deductions and lower rates.

 

"Long-term revenue that results from economic growth, that's fine," said Representative Jim Jordan, who heads the conservative Republican Study Committee caucus. "If it's revenue ... that increases the tax burden, I think that's a real problem."

 

Conservative Republicans, saying that their re-election gave them at least an equal mandate to President Barack Obama's, intend to dig in on growth revenues for the time being. A common refrain is that they weren't re-elected to raise taxes.

 

Their adherence to this theory could present a major hurdle for House Speaker John Boehner in winning passage for any deficit deal. [MORE]

Taxes: The Final Problem

Taxes: The Final Problem | Restaurant Tips and Management | Scoop.it

by MICHAEL CHARNEY

 

A couple of weeks ago I sat down to watch an episode of the latest Sherlock Holmes incarnation, a rather intriguing British production in which Holmes’ and Watson’s adventures have been updated to contemporary times. I remained fascinated for the first fifteen minutes or so; that was how long it took me to realize that the plot seemed overly familiar. Turns out the stories are based on Conan Doyle’s originals, all of which I’ve read over the years....

 

That just about sums up how I feel right now as I watch this taxing tussle: who we should or shouldn’t, and how much, and why. It’s all been done before, and the more important question now isn’t the plot itself, but whether the protagonists plan to struggle unendingly even as they dive headlong over Reichenbach Falls.

How Will Today’s Casual-Dining Restaurant Consumers Change Tomorrow’s Concepts?

How Will Today’s Casual-Dining Restaurant Consumers Change Tomorrow’s Concepts? | Restaurant Tips and Management | Scoop.it

Ten years ago, a casual-dining concept was simply an affordable, informal sit-down restaurant. But that was before fast-casual restaurants began competing in the space and upscale casual-dining restaurants began making significant headway.
Today, casual dining includes three major subsegments: fast casual (such as Panera Bread or Chipotle), traditional casual dining (such as Applebee’s or Olive Garden) and upscale casual dining (such as The Cheesecake Factory and P.F. Chang’s).
During the recession, fast-casual concepts benefited from consumer trade-downs while the full-service sectors faltered. But today’s consumers are feeling more optimistic about the economy and casual-dining operators are intensifying their efforts to compete for share of stomach, repositioning major brands with concept and menu revamps and continuing to lure diners with value-oriented promotions......

Nutrition Turned Upside Down and Backwards: Pizza is the New Vegetable

Nutrition Turned Upside Down and Backwards: Pizza is the New Vegetable | Restaurant Tips and Management | Scoop.it

In the fashion world, you often hear “pink is the new black” or “(insert color here) is the new black.” It’s because black is the basis of fashion – the standard, if you will. You can always count on black to be fashionable. It’s just right – in any situation.

 

Well, according to Congress, who has betrayed American children’shealth once again, “pizza is the new vegetable.” Yes, you read that right. Pizza, for the purposes of school lunch programs, is now considered a vegetable . . . thanks to its meager swipe of tomato paste.
