Let’s face it, most of us don’t have much time to spend in the kitchen these days. There’s always something to do, places to go, and people to see, and that doesn’t include the time you spend at work. Takeout or going to a restaurant solves the problem nicely, right? As a short term solution it does, but as a long term solution it can be cutting off your nose despite your face. If you could copycat recipes from restaurants and cook them at home it would save you money and much more while not missing out on the good things in life.
Going to restaurants and getting takeout is expensive, not only on your hip pocket but also on your waistline. The taste is great, but you don’t control what goes into the food. Really, you have no idea what you’re eating. Some restaurants will give you a breakdown of the nutritional value of what you are eating, but it’s not the same as doing it yourself. The problem is that often the meals taste better, and sometimes you just have a craving for restaurant food. It’s more than the convenience, it’s the whole package.
The type of restaurant equipment you will need for your restaurant depends on the type of service you provide. For example, if you are a full-scale restaurant you will need many more equipment items that a small mom and pop store will need. If you are a fast food restaurant, you will need different items than a restaurant along the lines of Ruby Tuesday’s.
There are so many different types of restaurant equipment available throughout the world that it will be in possible for me to write about them all. Therefore, I have chosen a few fascinating pieces of equipment to help you in your search and maybe make your job or that of your employees job a little easier along the way.

Antony Worrall Thompson’s Restaurants in London:
Decorating a restaurant isn’t always easy, especially if you’ve never done so before. It doesn’t have to be a trial, but keep in mind that there are plenty of mistakes to be made. Here are the top three to avoid.
1. Lack of ambiance. Music, lighting, temperature — just the general atmosphere of your restaurant is incredibly important. You want it to be a place people enjoying spending time. The food could be the best they’ve ever had, but if they feel uncomfortable in the place they’re eating it, chances are they’ll trade for slightly less quality food at a restaurant they love being in. Do not, under any circumstances use fluorescent lighting. Make sure the place is well-lit enough that the patrons will be able to see what they’re eating — and each other — but not so bright they feel like they’re in a hospital food court. Keep the music light, nothing that will overpower people’s conversations. Adjust the heat or air conditioning accordingly to the weather.
2. Cheap and tacky restaurant furniture. There’s nothing chic about chintzy restaurant tables and chairs. Even if the food isn’t expensive, no one wants to feel like they’re eating at a cheap place. Don’t settle for less than the best when you choose restaurant furniture — it needs to be comfortable and well-made. Go for cushioned seats with armrests, and for the bar, stools with padding. Don’t have the same seating all over — make sure everything matches, especially at each table, but having a variety of chairs throughout the restaurant is an easy way to add flair to its look. Regular chairs, booths and a bar with stools are the most common combinations. If any damages to the restaurant furniture occur, have them taken care of immediately —a tear with stuffing sticking out is unacceptable.
