Open Kitchen Layouts

The traditional approach of a closed-off kitchen is quickly evolving, as customers now look for a more immersive dining experience. Open kitchen layouts, where guests can observe the culinary action firsthand, has become a popular dseign choice. This not only addes an element of entertainment but also improves transparency, giving customers the ability to witness the freshness and quality of the food being prepared. Some restaurants are even taking it a step further by introducing interactive elements, such as chef's tables or cooking classes where diners can engage directly with the culinary team.

Exposed brick walls, metal accents, and reclaimed wood are important elements that contribute to this trend.

Everyone that we dealt with at Crew Builders including the owner, staff and subcontractors was extremely capable and responsive to our needs. The Crew Builder team made us feel as if we were their only client, even though I know they had running several other jobs at the same time.”
