Craft drinks and dishes

There are less universal sushi – pizza – hookah – karaoke restaurants. More and more often, guests prefer to such establishments more focused cafes, pizzerias or hookahs – places where they cook their favorite dishes are really delicious.

Fewer people are willing to be content with average quality in such supermarket restaurants, often for the same money as in cozy, atmospheric establishments. Hence the conclusion that it is worth focusing on single products: burger, pizzerias, etc.
Pastries and sweets
More bakeries and pastry shops. Fresh baked goods are in demand year-round, and such establishments can be placed both in sleeping areas and in the central streets with a lot of traffic. Continue reading

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.
