In a fast-paced world, with large group dinners out a real difficulty for both diner and restaurant, many restaurants are adapting with a trend that solves the problem, and creates a “family” feel to nights out in a large group. So what exactly is a family style meal? Basically, instead of individually ordered entrees, the group is served an assortment of foods, meant to share. Not only does it help connect the group as a whole over their meal, but it can actually be cost saving as well. Even high end dinners look about $25-45 a person. A far cry from the typical in dining out.

Food sharing is a medium that allows connection between a mutual enjoyment of food. It creates unity in “oh this is amazing!” knowing the person across from you is experiencing the same. Family style meals are all about BIG portions, and amazing sides. Creating a mix-and-match for each to customize their individual plates. Not into cabbage slaw? Awesome, more for the person next to you, and maybe they’ll pass over their portion of beans. So much sharing and caring <3
