If you’re more Pollen Street than high street, more artisan than mass market, and have a penchant for fine dining, a concierge company may be the missing ingredient in any foodie’s life.
From securing the hottest table in town, where to eat in London tonight, “money can’t buy” experiences and VIP extras, a lifestyle concierge service can transform the way you dine out forever.
For a foodie with an appreciation for great restaurants, here are eight ways a concierge company will add value:
Saves you time
They get it. You have high expectations, good taste, and not enough time in your day. A good concierge company will do all the hard work for you – researching, shortlisting, and booking restaurants at your disposal. That’s not all, expect the best table and a few perks along the way. Which brings us to our next point…
Bubbles on arrival, snacks courtesy of the kitchen, and complimentary desserts. This is just some of the added value that comes with being a member of a concierge company.
Best table in the house
Be it the chef’s table, a seat with a view, or the best table in the house, your concierge company will open up their black book of contacts just for you. Tapping into their global network, services extend to any destination you find yourself in. Additionally, concierge professionals can hold tables for clients at peak times, even at the most sought-after restaurants.
As a member of a private concierge group, you can gain access to a wealth of high-profile soirees. For instance, Ten Concierge recently hosted a private dinner for 40 members with Marcus Wareing, chef-patron of Marcus, a Michelin starred restaurant in London. This involved a bespoke five-course menu, followed by an intimate Q&A along with a tour of the kitchen.
Finger on the pulse
Your concierge team keep up-to-date with the latest trends and hottest venues in town so you don’t have to. Not only do you gain access to this insight but your concierge manager will keep you abreast of the latest industry news.
Being a member of a premium lifestyle service, such as the Ten Concierge, opens up doors. This can mean bypassing public reservation systems, enjoying priority seating, complimentary extras, and meet and greets with top chefs. Need we say more?
Raises your food game
Imagine learning cooking techniques with Michel Roux Jr, or a private tour of the kitchen at The Grill at the Dorchester, or even tasting new dishes ahead of the public?
Lifestyle management companies are top of the priority list when it comes to the latest restaurant openings. This means that members are the first to hear about reservation lines going live, as well as receive exclusive invites to pre-opening dinners, often with generous discounts applied.
So, there you have it – eight good reasons why restaurant-goers need a concierge service. We hope we’ve whet your appetite…
