Buffet style has become trendy once again. Buffet dining originated in France in the 16th century and has been a popular choice ever since.

A casual restaurant is something similar to a fast food joint like a burgher stop or sandwich shop and is a very popular type of restaurant. Everything is casual whether it is food, atmosphere, decor and serving style. Independent restaurants are known to have a casual concept. A little bistro down the road can be considered a casual restaurant.
Fast casual is bigger than fine dining and casual restaurants. It is very popular and trendy. It is a blend between casual and smart. You are smart but comfortably smart. It is slightly more upscale with disposable dishes, but the food is rather sophisticated with restaurants using organic ingredients to make gourmet breads.
Fine dining offers an upscale, sophisticated atmosphere and fancy dishes. For example, waiters in tuxedos and crisp white table cloths are what fine dining restaurants are all about. Guests are served the finest food and provided with the highest quality of service. The atmosphere is incredible and food items are pricey. But, it is good value for money, as you are paid 100% attention from all corners of the restaurant.
A cafe or bistro type of restaurant offers a self service or food over the counter. A bistro can be interchanged with a cafe. A bistro has elements of a cafe, but offers full meals to customers. It is also the place you can always find a great cup of coffee.
Ethnic cuisine is a specific type of concept that offers particular type of foods like Mexican, Spanish, French, Italian, Chinese or Indian. The restaurant name, atmosphere, decor, layout and service style should all reflect this concept from beginning to end. This type of concept stands out and there is not much competition when you focus on an ethnic style.
This is a fine concept style that helps you increase your brand. People already love your food so why not distribute it in the form of catering to people outside of your location and demographic. This is the first step to franchising your restaurant. Catering helps you increase your customer base and sales.
