The Rise of Fine Casual Dining in Lombok

14 June 2022


When asked what the next big thing in restaurants was, pioneering restaurateur Danny Meyer – Founder& CEO of Union Square Hospitality Group – said recently – ‘…It’s ‘Fine Casual’ and it’s already here… ! …If ‘Fast Food’ is the combination of speed and price, ‘Fine Casual’ is the combination of ‘Everything we know from Fine Dining’ applied to the systems of Casual, Relaxed Dining.

As the food-lovers we all are, we know there are several classifications for restaurants generally based on food and style, serving, preparation methods, and pricing. The two broadest categories are Casual and Fine Dining. Among the key difference between the two, is the atmosphere and ambience. Casual Dining is friendlier and more informal, whereas Fine Dining exudes a more elegant and formal atmosphere. The food on offer differs, and pricing comes into play as well.

Looking for the right blend of a High-Class and Atmospheric Restaurant, offering great flavors during your stay in Lombok?Visit one of the restaurants of The Lombok Lodge Hospitality Group!

Each with their own unique Fine-Casual Food Concept, with carefully-selected choices in terms of ingredients and where passionate people serve you. Where unique taste sensations and atmosphere come together to form the ultimate experience.

Both restaurants of The Lombok Lodge Group are Fine-Casual Dining Establishments with the convenience of Fine-Casual, upscale features such as tasting menu options, vegan, vegetarian & keto cuisine choices – even Adele’s Super-Healthy SirtFood Cuisine and high quality alcoholic/non-alcoholic drinks. Last but not least nostalgic Lombok dishes such as Ayam Taliwang and probably the best Nasi Goreng on the island.

The demand for high quality food without unhealthy additives is quickly growing, especially in these post-pandemic times.

The convenience of being served at the table, in a casual way but with care and passion about hospitality and healthy choices. ‘…The Lombok Lodge, Lombok with a Difference…’

Here at The Lombok Lodge, we decided to go the ‘Fine-Casual’ route because we felt that there was a real demand for a chef driven casual option where ‘real’ chefs were cooking ‘real’ food. People are always looking for food that tastes really good! As a part of the The Lombok Lodge Hospitality Concept, guests will experience our Fine Casual Food Concepts as one of the highlights of their Lombok holiday.
