Tips for Choosing the Best Flatware for your Restaurant

Posted on January 01 2020

Consider the overall look of your tabletop:

When designing your dining room tabletop, china is typically the first product line chosen, followed by flatware. Take into consideration the style of china you select when choosing a flatware pattern. Whether simplistic and sleek, chic and contemporary, or ornate and intricate, complementing the wares will create a harmonizing look.

How does the flatware feel in your hand?

It’s a well-known fact that flatware has the most exposure to guests. The weight, shape and texture all contribute to the overall dining experience. Think about your target clientele when considering size and weight. For instance, if your guests are more apt to appreciate a rustic look and feel, flatware with a heavier, larger handle may be a better choice.

What are you featuring on your menu?

While all flatware lines include the five main pieces – dinner fork, salad fork, tablespoon, teaspoon and a dinner knife – not all include the more specialty items like a cocktail fork or butter knife. If you are serving appetizers, soups or desserts that require a specific utensil, choose a flatware pattern that includes all essential tools. This will help to keep you from using mismatched flatware.
