Create a festive atmosphere

First thing first! Create an atmosphere for festivity. Decorate your restaurant with a fresh new look for the holiday. Put up the Christmas lights, bring out that Christmas tree, and put up new signs that are both warm and welcoming.

Create a special menu for the holiday

This is optional as creating a specialised and or fixed-priced menu does not work for all restaurants but it can be helpful to have.

Servers and staff members will likely be running around all evening and having a special menu with a few items picked to embody the holiday or a handful of popular dishes off the regular menu, can reduce how much they will need to remember and cut down on wait times in the kitchen.

Another option for creating a specific menu for the night would be to choose dishes with overlapping or complementary ingredients as this can also be helpful when ordering inventory prior to the event.

Prepare the summer touches

Whether it means adding gazpacho and refreshing cocktails to appease seasonal tastes or opening windows to evoke a patio feel, it’s important to make sure you’re ready to appeal to customers’ season-specific mindsets.

Keep your menu fresh and interesting by updating it with summer-inspired specials. Make sure you have your plans laid out for both food and décor.

Service

Give your diners great service, and they will be sure to appreciate it! The holidays are the perfect time to connect with your clientele.
