What size is a dinner plate?
A standard dinner plate is about 11-12″ (280-305mm) in diameter, although some – particularly showy designer plates – can range up to 13″ (330mm) and beyond. Although larger plates will give you a wider canvas on which to get creative when plating up your dishes, if they’re too big they can quickly begin to clutter your tables, making them feel cramped. Hence, the standard 11-12″ diameter plates most restaurants use.
How many plates do I need for a 100 seat restaurant?
The generally accepted rule is to order 1.75 plates per guest you’re serving. So for a 100 seat restaurant, you’d need about 175 plates. Why so many? Well, as any restaurateur worth their salt knows, being prepared for the worst is the key to providing the best, and a .75 plate buffer per guest means you’ll always have enough crockery to keep service going in the face of smashed crockery and other unforeseen mishaps. Using this formula, for a 20 seat restaurant you’d need 35 plates, for a 50 seat restaurant you’d need 88, and for a huge 200-seater you’d be well advised to cover your bases and buy 350 plates.
Are porcelain dishes durable?
Next to bone china, porcelain dishes are some of the most durable around. Shatter resistant, extremely hardwearing, microwave and dishwasher safe, they’re perfect for everyday use in the busiest of restaurants. And as porcelain doesn’t fade, they’ll retain their finish for much longer than dishes made from other materials.
