When considering the floor plan the first thing to do is consider the menu. The menu and the type of food that is being created actually decides the lay out of the kitchen. The first thing to do is consider the flow of traffic for food preparation. Then the flow in and out of the kitchen needs to be considered. This is even more important than the actual table layout of the restaurant itself. A mistake here could end up costing money to repair as well as lowering the available profit margin.

Influences such as courtyards, patios and other Spanish colonial architectural details were embraced and played upon. What was known as the front porch or veranda, was moved from the front to the back of the house and heralded the arrival of a significant lifestyle change. Families now preferred the privacy of their back yard rather than sitting on the front porch watching traffic.
