What awaits the restaurant business in 2020

Problems of the restaurant business in 2019
As in any other business, there are key points due to which institutions are most often closed, and no matter, this is a small coffee shop or restaurant with 200 seats. From year to year, some reasons may change, but there are those that remain unchanged. Main problems:

Location. No matter how you praise your kitchen or concept with a perfect design, unfortunately, this does not guarantee good attendance. You need traffic that is highly dependent on location.

Carles Abellán

Disguised as an ordinary “tapas” gourmet restaurant from the famous chef Carles Abellán – a student of Ferran Adrius, who is involved in many projects of the great master, including El Bulli (Roses) and Hacienda Benanuza (Seville). The cornerstone of Spanish cuisine, the culture of tapas, takes the strangest forms here, creatively interpreting the gastronomy of Asia, Latin America and America. Only here you can try unusual dishes such as a salad of sardines with orange and wasabi, tuna tartar, lollipop quail, piglet burrito with guacamole and green sauce, or salad salad of orchids, ice grass and mushrooms. The maestro himself characterizes the kitchen of Comerç 24 as “with roots, but without borders.” The institution is located in an old canning factory building, in the heart of the bohemian Bourne and has a fashionable design with an “open” kitchen, a bar and a restaurant in one space.

Best restaurants in Cologne

You can easily find typical sausage and sauerkraut in Cologne, the city has long expanded its culinary repertoire outside the German stereotype, having mastered international cuisine. Michelin stars now adorn many restaurants in Cologne, and the menu includes influences from different regions, from France to the Far East. Cologne restaurants in this selection were grouped into three categories: expensive (more than 45 €), moderate (25 € – 45 €) and cheap (up to 25 €). These are the prices for a three-course lunch, not including drinks. Please note that credit cards may not be accepted at some pubs. Tipping is a matter of personal preference depending on the quality of food and service, usually about 10%.
