 Will the steakhouse be opened in a private and detached building?
 Will the Steakhouse Restaurant Be Open by the Sea?
 Will the Steak Restaurant Be Alcoholic or Non-Alcoholic?

Afterwards, if we take into account the tastes of restaurant investors with taste, the sky is the last limit in this regard... The most important thing that I should mention here, tell the professionals of the business what you want to do and ensure that a feasibility is formed by itemizing it. Be sure to ask your interior architect for pricing in your work.

In my international studies, I have seen those who try because of small costs, it does not work!!!

One of the most important factors here is the number of chairs and the Importance and Features of the Restaurant Food Menu in Menu Management .

Maybe you can ask in Turkey, but you cannot ask anyone for directions in Europe, America and Arab countries.
