Oysters Rockefeller with Chicken Bacon
“Appetizers should be items that are distinctive enough to get customers’ attention but not so strange that guests don’t know whether they’ll like them or not. At the same time, shareable items are gaining in popularity.”
Nation’s Restaurant News, “Innovative, Sharable Appetizers Drive Sales,” July 2013.
