Great deals for diners as restaurants get creative with menus
“I believe that recession or no recession people want to go out to eat because they still want to enjoy themselves and get away from the doom and gloom. It just means you have to cut your cloth accordingly,” says Le Vacherin’s Malcolm John.
And he’s not alone, La Trompette’s co-owner Bruce Pool agrees that peoples needs and tastes are changing and would rather charge as little as he can and “have a fuller restaurant with happy customers.”
However, even before these belt tightening times, local restaurateurs have been offering diners some great deals, especially set menu lunches and early evening meals. However, with businesses dropping like flies, it is more important than ever that we support our local businesses.
