Dining out at a restaurant is always an act of enjoyment in that it taps into fundamental human drives which is to eat, but also to seek the stimulation of seeking new environments. That is why when a person dines out they are making a fully voluntary act — so this should be a thing met with celebration that they’ve come to eat at your establishment, and it would be sorrowful if they never stepped foot in the door.
That’s why it is very important that when people are being adventurous you reward them with a comfortable, safe environment.
But equally as important than all of these things is that they can find you, and have expectations that meet the reality of the dishes you serve. What if you only made sandwiches, and they came in looking for pies? That is why restaurant’s information available by request with either through to-go menus, or arguably more importantly finding appropriate places on the internet to submit your menus so that people can find the food you already know they’re going to enjoy.
Now. What do you want to eat? What could actually make you almost want to eat it so terribly you could get up out of your chair immediately, leave your home behind and go on a dining adventure?
Most likely what a person might want to eat would not actually fit with the region they’re in. That place might be too great of a distance away. That’s what would keep you in your metaphorical chair.
The barrier, however, is actually an information one. If you thought of the perfect dining safari, and you could find it recreated nearby at a new restaurant then that might even be a serious no brainer. Lack of information is always the enemy to be beaten.
