Idea for Bars/Resteraunts facing downturn

So the Christmas parties have been cancelled, people are buying the fixed price menu and the house wine. How can resteraunts boost their income?

How about attracting a new market. People who eat on their own but don't want to eat in a resteraunt on their own. Have a sitting every half hour and whoever wants to eat are put together on a table together. Very unbritish I know. But why not? The sell is you get cheap food, as cheap as eating at home, you don't have to dine alone and who knows who you might meet or what interesting conversations you might have. I would go just to meet new people but without the pressure of networking or the singles scene.

If you would go for this, there is a place in Broadgate ready to give it a try.

I like eating on my own (I bring a book and try not to make eye contact), but this makes sense. Could be fun!

Thanks for your comment. I agree, there are days I enjoy good food and glass of wine and a good book, and not having to share!

Other days when it would be fun to talk. For me, this would be an additional meal eaten out - more money for the resteraunt.

It seems my language skills need to be strengthened, because I totally can not read your information, but I think this is a good BLOG
