Shareable meals are trending because they are economical, intimate, and give each diner the chance to taste a bite of everything. Brunch is a perfect setting for a shareable plate, and this traditional presentation has been served at nostalgic Jewish-owned delis for decades. Take inspiration from this deep cultural fabric by constructing your own brunch spread with whipped smoked trout rillettes and smoked salmon, herb labneh, and beet and chèvre salad, all ready to be piled high on an “everything” bagel. Incorporating smoked or cured fish and fresh salads into your breakfast and/or brunch menu is just one simple way to add more depth to your offerings. Presentation matters too, playing a critical role in your restaurant’s brand. Try serving brunch dishes on distinctive wood boards and don’t forget the details such as vintage bottles for orange juice or interesting mini serving bowls for the sides. Maines offers serving ware with unique styles, colors, and options that will enhance the overall customer dining experience.
