What sort of restaurant are you looking for?

March 13th, 2011

In Brisbane there is an incredible variety of restaurants, food  and decor styles. 

Over the years we have found that what we want to eat in a restaurant, and the style of that establishment has radically changed.  For many years we went to France on pilgrimages to Michelen starred restaurants, delighting in the precision of the food, the formality of the exquisite settings and the whole experience.  Now we prefer more casual settings (with personality) and tasty ‘real’  food that highlights the produce.  (I am a fan of Rick Stein for that reason.)

But what do you look for?  Do Degustation menus turn you on?  Are you interested in molecular cooking (a la Heston Blumenthal) where chefs experiment with changing the structure of the food?  Do you go for a particular nationality of cuisine?  Is wine an important part of the restaurant experience for you?  Does the service matter?

This information is really interesting for restaurateurs, some of whom are dedicated to serving their customers only what they like, and others who try to gauge what customers are into.  Of course there are always fads and fashions, but looking beyond that what style of restaurant will you go to next?
