Have you ever heard about theme restaurants? What are so special about those?! They are expensive, yes, but it is definitely would be interesting to visit one. For sure, in such way comments of people who have visited one would sound. Theme restaurants are usually very specific and interesting for customers.
In recent years the popularity of theme restaurants has increased a lot according to restaurant reviews. That first of all happened because of the parallel growth of the market for items of nostalgia. Theme restaurants are not like fast food restaurants that offer cheap food in cookie-cutter buildings; those provide diners with a good meal, as well as a nice and unusual experience. For example, such theme restaurants as Ed Debevic's and Medieval Times use music, well-trained waiters and themed menus, etc. They do everything possible to set the mood for an interesting dining experience. Even offering higher-priced meals than their competitors, theme restaurants are usually very successful.
According to restaurant reviews, any typical theme restaurant has a period-appropriate menu, as well as staff, if to be more specific, waiters who buy into the restaurant's theme and a show. On the menu of a theme restaurant one will find appetizer, entree and dessert names that are all appropriate for the theme. For example, The Rainforest Cafe features a Jungle Safari Soup, Amazon Fajitas and a Sparkling Volcano on its menu, as restaurant reviews tell. In such restaurants as Medieval Times, Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede and Ed Debevic's, the waitstaff has to speak with the right accent and dialogue to the customers when taking orders, and so on. Thus when going to any theme restaurant, diners are not going to full stomachs with delicious food and lighter wallets, but also to get some new impressions and face something unusual.
What is the way to find the right theme? I guess this issue is interesting for many people. The starting point is food and entertainment choices, those are the first things for most theme restaurant owners to consider. For example, the restaurant owner of Medieval Times looks to have relied on the verbose language of medieval Europe, as well as food staples such as turkey legs and competitive sports like the joust which is used to get diners into the action. On this example we can come to conclusion that when the right period is selected, a restaurant owner can cover the entirety of pop culture from this period or focus on a single aspect.
Ed Debevic's which has been already mentioned above is a theme restaurant in Illinois which features 1950s music, jukeboxes, diner food and other artifacts from this dashing decade. In this case the restaurant chose to put a different twist on the theme restaurant, the chosen theme encouraged its wait staff to be rude and joke around with customers. Such a nice concept! But after checking restaurant reviews we can't say that the customers don't like this nice rudeness and impoliteness.
