Add plants

Senecios, crassulas and echeverias are reappearing in restaurants. Whether decorating a solarium or adding depth to bars, these succulents are the perfect embodiment of health and respect for nature. A vertical garden in a restaurant also softens more industrial decor, and provides noise reduction.

Consider hydroponics

A little basil and thyme, a few sprigs of parsley, fresh mint leaves: these aromatic herbs garnish all kinds of culinary preparations and cocktails. Why not grow them near the kitchen or bar, even if you have very little space? Hydroponic systems make it possible to cultivate plants without soil, providing mineral salts and essential nutrients that allow them to grow indoors year-round.

Try a culinary garden

Your restaurant is in the heart of the city, but you have a little extra space. Why not try an urban vegetable garden? It’s a winning concept thanks to growing diner demand for local, in-season produce. Tending the garden takes time, but it can also be a great way to inspire your chefs and assistants to create new farm-to-table recipes.
