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.

Michelin-starred Barcelona restaurants

The Spaniards are great lovers and connoisseurs of good cuisine, since the climate, sea and traditions give them a unique feast culture, joyful, vibrant, with intense tastes and aromas and without any frills in the cooking technique.

It is they who today own the majority of the stars awarded by the famous Michelin rating.

By the way, most of the “star” establishments are located at luxury hotels, which is rather not a trend, but a tradition: the best restaurants in Catalonia have long been located at the living rooms. We offer a list of Barcelona restaurants with Michelin stars. Continue reading

However, in addition to local flavor and culinary traditions, in Odessa you can find good places with foreign motives. Where to eat in Odessa, so as to satisfyingly satisfy your taste preferences, sit down with a cup of coffee, dying “momentary weakness” for two cheeks, organize a quick snack in one of the inexpensive street venues – read on.
