The Beauty of On-premise Dining: Artful Presentation

After months of takeout and delivery meals, many of us can't wait to feast our eyes on an artfully prepared dish, one that’s made just for us and not by us. Whether your business is casual dining, fine dining, or anywhere in between, opportunity and repeat business await those who find joy and pride in the art of presentation.

If you’re a believer in the “we eat with our eyes” philosophy, read on for some inspiration to whet your creative appetite.

We’ll start with your canvas, the plate. 

Purity Organic by Bauscher provides a clean and natural backdrop to complement your culinary creations with an understated beauty that never distracts from the true star of the show, the food. Purity Organic is available in four asymmetric flat coupe sizes and two asymmetric deep coupe sizes.

Or opt for the Playground NARA round flat plate, a sleek design that adds drama and contrast to your presentation without stealing the show. This distinctive stoneware style is available in an 8.3" plate.

With the goal of maximizing the customer experience in mind, Mercer has developed a wide range of tools that will inspire you to create and impress your guests with a dining experience for all the senses. Brushes, wedges, tongs, and spoons can be used separately or together to create a limitless array of designs that unleash your creativity and wow your patrons. With a variety of styles, sizes, and shapes—sold separately or in complete sets—these refined instruments are designed to help you expertly finish your own masterpiece.

The Mercer 8-piece Plating Set provides all the essential items needed for attractive presentations and comes with a heavy-duty roll for easy storage and transport. 

The Mercer 6-piece Silicone Brush Set is dishwasher safe and features color-coded brush heads and tips for easy identification of brush style. Tapered, textured handles provide a sure grip for and comfort for smooth control to show off your artistic flair. This 480°F heat-tolerant set also comes with a heavy-duty roll for easy storage and transport.

To keep up with the pace of casual dining while giving presentation an eye-catching pop, TableCraft offers a variety of serving collections to help elevate any food’s presentation. We’re big fans of the Brickhouse Collection. Platters, pails, fry cups, and ramekins all come in a variety of sizes and styles that are all dishwasher safe. Made of 18-8 stainless steel with a brick pattern texture, the stackable design will also help you save space in your kitchen. Perfect for appetizers, shareables, and quick entrees like sandwiches, burgers, and hot dogs, Brickhouse platters come in small and large sizes of three different shapes: round, oval, and rectangular. 

And to help you keep your presentation coordinated, matching Brickhouse ramekins come in the same stainless steel brick pattern texture in 1.5, 2.5, and 3.5 ounce capacities. These ramekins are great for individual servings of condiments such as ketchup, mayo, ranch, and specialty house sauces.
