Designing a floor plan
Eggspectation floor plan will depend on some factors. Dimension will have to be considered in respect to the size of settings. For instance, the dining area will only cover 60% of the total area. The remainder is 40% of the total area, which is left for kitchen planning and building. Designing the seating plan also will require some considerations. Since it will be an open type restaurant, it's vital to keep in mind of a 200 banquet seating facility and the 75 fine dining room areas. For a banquet, it would normally require 10 square feet per individual while, for the fine dining area, it require 20 square feet per individual. The size specification brings us to a common understanding of fitting both situations in one setting. The individual space will then be 15 square feet per individual. This consideration will take into consideration of the space needed by the waiter and guest for traffic aisles purposes .
