A sort of welcome menu that challenges them to be creative. And it also becomes an unforgettable experience that gives them new clientele.
“We received helpful feedback from participating restaurants through the years and diners itself to determine the price of menus, which should work for restaurants and reflect what diners are willing to pay for a new dining experience” Paco Ojeda said. “Ultimately, it is almost impossible to satisfy everyone, but we do everything possible to produce the event with the best quality and encourage participating restaurants to offer a first class service that will make the new diners become frequent clients “.
