If your restaurant is serving up dishes that are meant to be shared, or mini versions of popular menu items (think sliders!), you’ve already become part of the small plates trend. Small plates are tiny, bite-sized offerings that are often served in individual portions. Small plate restaurants take this idea to the next level, exclusively offering shareable portions that give customers a chance to sample more items on your menu while also giving chefs more creative culinary freedom.

This trend has taken the restaurant industry by storm, as customers nationwide have shown tremendous interest in experiencing small plate eating. Here are five reasons why small plates have experienced an increase in popularity:

  • Customers can dine like food critics
  • Less risk while ordering
  • Increase in socializing during meals
  • Smaller Portions = Less Calories
  • Visual Appeal


Restaurants must monitor this trend and consider adding this option to their menu. Adding small plates to the menu can increase your sales by providing customers with a cutting edge and versatile dining experience.
