“Going out is the new staying in”, all around the world our interest in food and healthy eating is a well established phenomenon; street food, Michelin star restaurants, coffee shops whatever the occasion there’s an increasingly varied choice of venue. Of course in reality going out to eat is only really partly to do with the food itself. The thing that makes going out so unique, so special is the experience itself. Sharing time with friends, or family, a prospective lover, a group of work colleagues – whatever the situation, it’s more memorable over food.
When we do go out we expect the experience to be out of the ordinary, otherwise we would just stay in and cook for ourselves. Service and design are two key ingredients, when creating an appropriate ambience lighting of course is crucial to mood.
