Creative Ideas for Restaurant Service – Home Dinner for Friends

Serve Historically “Flavored” Dishes:Each dish you serve would have a special historical tale or anecdote related to it.The tale may be written down on a small card or may be told by a waiter.For special dishes you may even have someone dress up as the historical figure related to the event, and tell the tale “in person”.

A Dinner with “a Secret Mission”:As the guests arrive, each draws an envelope with a mission they must complete by the end of the meal, without telling any of the other guests what the mission was.If they succeed in doing so, they win a special treat (a desert or a gift of sorts).If they fail – they get a symbolic “punishment”.

Adults, Teens and Kids – Special Service:It is quite common to find special dishes for children in restaurants. Many quick food places also add special gifts to the kids’ meals, and have seats and tables that are of smaller size for them. But, consider taking this a few steps further – how about having children serve children, teens serve teens, and adults serve adults?Although it is probably not possible to use children as regular workers, you may be able to arrange this in a family-owned restaurant, and certainly in a dinner you are hosting at your own home.The children may see this as a kind of game, and may even be allowed to incorporate play into the event – for instance by dressing up as waiters, by preparing a simple dish on their own (chocolate balls, for instance).

A Dinner for those who Don’t Like to go out for dinner:One of the fascinating and challenging suggestions made by Kim and Mauborgne in their revolutionary Blue Ocean Strategy book is that one may find a very fruitful new market by serving those who are “non-customers”. Along this line of thought, can you come up with thoughts that would make people who usually refrain from coming to restaurants?Can you reckon of ways for making friends who usually shy away from visiting friends change their habits and accept your invitation for dinner and delight in the evening?

Excellent Luck with your dinner. Bon appetite!
