Having just moderated a talk about food and design, I have eating and designing on the brain. It seems like Squarespace has it on their mind, too. I love looking at restaurants’ menus online before making a reservation but I always find them to be so cumbersome and awkward. From poorly-designed PDF menus to flash intros to hidden navigation, I am one click away from ordering a pizza instead.
Just like any other business, restaurants need to know how important their websites are to customers, and not only the desktop experience, but mobile as well. I don’t know about you, but I usually look up a local restaurant when I’m in the car on the way somewhere (obviously not driving), walking in a neighborhood, or even just on the couch; I’m not typically sitting in front of my computer. Squarespace offers such a fantastic experience for restaurants that maximizes the important things I need to know: location, menu, contact info, and hours all while looking pretty on my computer and my phone.
Here are some of my favorite well-designed restaurant websites who use Squarespace. What their food tastes like, I don’t know but maybe you do… so please share in the comments if you’ve ever been to any of these places!
