Have you been watching this season of Anythony Bourdain's Parts Unknown
? This show is a favorite for many of our consultants because it showcases food and dining experiences around the world from a local vantage point. It's easy to read up on the current "hotspot," but harder to find those places that really encapslate a local food scene. These are important things to consider in the restaurant business too--who are you catering to? The one-stop traffic moving through your town for business or pleasure? Or the locals who are going to value what you do to deliver a service and product that speaks to them?
We also love Where Chefs Eat
as a good on-the-go restaurant guide when we're traveling around. Restaurant consultants like good food, you know?
