The Secret of Restaurant Menus
menuofservicesIf you've ever ordered the wrong food at a restaurant, don't blame yourself. Blame the menu.

What you order may have less to do with what you want and more to do with a menu's layout and descriptions.

After analyzing 217 menus and the selections of over 300 diners, a study published in the International Journal of Hospitality Management showed that when it comes to what you order for dinner, two things matter most: what you see on the menu and how you imagine it will taste.

 

Any food item that attracts attention (with bold, highlighted or colored font or set apart in a text box) makes us more likely to order that food item rather than the item listed next to it. Of course, these are almost always the least healthy items on the menu.

 

Menu names with descriptive items sell better and lead you to believe that they taste better. The researchers changed the names of restaurant menu items to make them more descriptive: the seafood filet became Succulent Italian Seafood Filet and red beans and rice became Cajun Red Beans and Rice. Sales of these items went up by 28% and they were rated as tastier, even though the recipe was identical. Diners were also willing to pay an average of 12% more money for a menu item with a descriptive name.

 

If you are not sure what would be considered healthier menu items, the researchers suggest asking your server what are the two or three lighter entrees that get the most compliments.

 

Bonnie: Another great option is to create your own entree. This is especially important if you have one or more food intolerances/allergies. Most restaurants would rather have your business than be put-off by your request. 

 

To let the server down easy, tell him or her that you are on a special dietary protocol and must eat very specific foods.

You May Need a Wellness Update. 

Did you know that a Council for Responsible Nutrition survey found that those who frequently engage in healthy habits visit their health professionals regularly?

 

Has it been a while since your last visit? Have you had major trauma or changes in your life that have altered your optimal balance? Or, do you just feel there is one something missing from you feeling ideal? Chances are that you are due for a wellness update with Bonnie.

 

If you have had bloodwork within the last 6-8 months, bring a copy to your appointment. Be ready to discuss any diet, supplement, medication, health status, and major life changes since your last visit.

 

To set up an appointment, please contact us at 847-498-3422.
