17 Personalized Restaurant Options

From Tailored Seafood Bowls to Custom Grab-and-Go Sushi

— January 7, 2016 — Lifestyle
Whether a diner prefers their meals to deliver health or indulgence, personalized restaurant menus are making it easy for eateries to cater to all types of consumers.

While pre-set signature items on a menu provide the chance for diners to easily order flavorful chef-created meals, customization creates room for a menu to be tailored to an individual's health goals, taste preferences or dietary restrictions.

With the utmost simplicity in mind, Sweetfin Poké and Piada Italian Street Food are two great examples of fast casual restaurants that employ a three-step personalization process. Similarly, Noodles & Company's new website features an online ordering portal that lets consumers begin by choosing a base dish, then add or remove ingredients until it is exactly to their specifications.

Offering a customizable menu may seem complicated, but a number of restaurants are now prioritizing personalization, especially for easy-to-prepare items like pizza, sushi, tacos, burgers and more.
