When you start creating your restaurant for Restaurant City, one of the first things you need to do is decide what you are going to do about your layout. At first, with only 1 chef and 3 tables, it doesn’t matter all that much, but once you have at least two chefs or 5+ tables, you need to start thinking about how to establish your building layout so that you can maximize efficiency and how much coin and GP you will make for the time spent online Lahaina restaurants.
What is an Island Layout?
The phrase you will hear most often associated with your layout is “island layout”. This phrase refers to a self contained grouping of tables and stoves where waiters have to move as little as possible and your characters all rotate in the right amount of space.
There are a few things a good island layout should do. It should make it so your chefs are right beside the tables they are serving, minimizing movement of your servers. They should also remain a good distance from the doors so that new customers have to travel to the table a good distance, giving servers more time to clear tables and prepare for new customers.
Finally, you also want them to look good. A messy, poorly laid out island will not get you those all important ratings you’re hoping for from your fellow players.
How to Make a Good Island Layout
So, with that in mind, how do you put your island layout together so that you can maintain the most effective and well designed style of restaurant? That’s a tough question and one that every player has a different answer to. But, for those that are interested in putting together a good set of tables that look good and work well with your employees, aim for a small lateral design.
Minimize diagonal lines for your servers as they travel slower over these. Put the stoves in between tables and make space for characters to move quickly between tables as much as possible.
If you set up a good island layout and use it effectively to maintain the speed of service between your chefs and your waiters, your restaurant will be that much more effective and grow larger before you know it.
