What’s cookin’, good-lookin’?

Mock-up by the interior designer.  Will change the wall on the left, add in light fixtures above the sushi counter and extend the shelves.

What do you think about the light wood?  They also sent variations on a darker tone as well as black.

    Is the restaurant open for reservations? What happens if the crowd gets too huge during lunch hours…….will we be elbowing others when we stand and eat? Also if during dinner crowd, if one drinks too much of sakae and gets drunk, will there be seats provided? Just thinking

    I like the ‘Standing Sushi Bar’ logo and the Jap words that goes along with it…very kawaii neh

    I think I might like Black -more sleek (bar-like) and low maintenance. But then, this might not be the image you want for your sushi bar.

    The display in the front, what does it contain? If that is where you have lunch boxes or takeaway the customer flow might be bad. They’ll have to ask someone and then cross in front to cue up, no? I personally like the darker version, but it might be useful to see a mock up with your neighbor stores and their associated lighting…I think you’ll have a lot of reflected light.

    @hycoupe I’m not planning on having reservations for the restaurant. If it gets popular during dinner, then maybe reservations for dinner but definitely not for lunch. I want people to be comfortable while eating so even though it’s a standing place (which I still insist is comfortable!) there will be plenty of space for each diner – they won’t be bumping into each others. Also at night I would like to provide some chairs for drinkers / diners. The problem at the moment is figuring out where to store the chairs! The logo has been the “temporary” logo for a couple months, but people seem to be responding positively to it so I might just make it the official logo!

    @Miss Glitzy – It’s interesting, black is getting the fewest votes because of it being “too sleek.” I think it makes it too intimidating and I want to find a look that makes it welcoming and “quirky.”

    @Leon – The display in front is the lunchboxes. It’s not the proper chiller that we will have (ours definitely won’t be covered). Customers will be able to take the lunchboxes on their own and then cross over to the register to pay. Reason that it’s on the right side and not by the cash registers is because if there are a lot of people who want take-away, they can queue up in the hallway outside of the shop. If the take-away section was by the cash register, the customer would block the take-away section as they are paying. They would also end up blocking the entrance of the shop so customers going in / out to the sushi counter would get stuck. We’ll have two registers – one positionally more favorable for dine-in customers that are exiting and the other for the take-away customers.
