Now we are getting to the really good stuff. A new customer comes in and is seated in your restaurant. What are his or her first impressions? Aside from the greeting, the tabletop is likely the first place they will focus. A beautiful and functional tabletop will tell the diner that they are in for a culinary experience. Whether you are a Fish and Chips joint with a nice dark malt vinegar in a cruet, or a romantic tablecloth restaurant with fresh flowers in a vase, this is your opportunity to tell your customer what you are all about.
