One of the new trends in gastronomy is the restaurant menu design and the efforts to create Restaurant Menu contents, as well as the comments made by the regulars about how the related designs fit the restaurant concepts or how much they reflect the real identity of the restaurant.
After the pandemic, gastronomy researches made according to New Food Trends & Restaurant Trends in 2022 have already started to be applied in food, beverage and accommodation sector businesses. Even the restaurant businesses of the years have abandoned their old habits and adopted new restaurant trends in 2022 .
In the research I conducted before writing this article, I saw that some gastronomy and restaurant management experts, who are considered experts in the subject, unfortunately wrote the criteria for menu design and menu content creation as if it were a similar topic.
Especially if I have to specify at the beginning of my article, what does menu design mean? What does menu creation mean? I will try to explain. In fact, the restaurant food menu from the main theme is the essence and owner of the main detail and source of the restaurant concept.
Sample Restaurants
Today , determining the types of dishes to be found in sample restaurant menus is a separate area of ​​expertise, as well as a subject that requires different virtues in the field of menu consultancy . The common meeting point to be considered in both is the restaurant concept .
Restaurant Menu design and restaurant menu contents are directly related to the restaurant's service concept, food concept and concept design .

In fact, if I go to the root of the matter, before you do anything from scratch, the moment you decide to open a new restaurant , it should be decided what the restaurant menu will be without the new restaurant budget ( construction)  and even the restaurant opening budget . After the gastronomic research in your region, the food you want to sell and the services you want to sell will form your concept. 
Because all restaurant concepts will be a source because they will be related to the food types in the restaurant menu. The more solid your basic source is, the more others can be reproduced, taking into account the restaurant menu contents.
If I need to give some examples on this subject;
There cannot be a restaurant business without a related concept. This is a ship without a sail and a rudder. The concepts to be chosen by a restaurant to be opened with the aim of winning and definite success can be as follows;

When you say what should I pay attention to when opening  a new restaurant , the most important work you need to do is the main concept of the restaurant together with the restaurant menu. Some of the main elements that will form the concept may be one of the following.
* For Discovery Purpose,
* Being For Recreation,

* The fact that the restaurant is by the sea,
* Being in the Business Center of the Restaurant,

A restaurant can have breakfast, lunch, dinner, alcoholic and non-alcoholic, personalized, wedding and engagement, protocol, banquet, pizzeria and etc…. It cannot be a restaurant providing services. If you say that you will sell everything and provide every service, I recommend that you give up your efforts to open a new restaurant .

Every meal you sell and every new type of service you make requires you to build infrastructure in your restaurant. Do not exaggerate the number of ingredients in the food menu, with your friends flattering and saying let's sell this too. Your casualties increase and your food and service quality decreases. Over time, you will have to tell your guests that half of the ingredients on the food menu are gone. With these negative developments, the results of your efforts to sell everything and provide every service may force you to close your business in the long run.

With Result:
First of all, find the answer why you should open a restaurant for any place. Find the answer to what you want to do and what you need to sell in the restaurant you will open in the relevant location. You may need the most successful restaurant in the location you want , but what kind of restaurant is needed?
People Can Give You Different Ideas! Don't forget, you are the one who will make the investment by spending money!!! 
If you decide exactly what you want to do, everything will work as it should. But if you try to create the menu by making the restaurant first, then you will have to change or renew something. You will also have to match or compare something to something else. In fact, some of them will not fit, it will be narrow, it will be abundant, it will be insufficient, or you will not like what comes out and you will cancel it. 
My recommendation;
Think at least 3 times, have it verified by someone who knows, have it verified by someone who knows better, comparing the results with your budget; You can set out towards your goal focused on resources, time and success. There is a promise in our business; "Don't be a master of the work you haven't apprenticed," he said. If you do not understand this business, but you want to own brand restaurants , take someone who understands the business with you and make it grow with you.
