Two Chicks, Three Seats Episode 70: Discussing Minimalistic Restaurant Menus, Event Activations, Kitchen Knives, and Restaurant TikTok Virality


We know that all of our event professional Tripleseat customers out there are busy with summer events right now, so they may not have had the chance to stay up to date on some current industry headlines.

On the latest episode of Tripleseat’s podcast, Two Chicks, Three Seats, my co-host Kate Kennedy and I dive into some insightful industry stories that got us thinking about the hospitality and events industry.

We discuss the concept of a minimalistic restaurant menu and how we may continue to see it replaced by a more descriptive alternative. We talk about event activations and how both planners and venues can incorporate unique experiences into their events. We talk about back-of-house norms when it comes to chefs and their kitchen knives. Finally, we end on the topic of restaurant virality on TikTok and how it can truly result in restaurant sales.
