Determined to give his customers what they really want, restaurateur Chris Nestor of the new House Kitchen & Bar is actively soliciting input for his menu. When you enter the restaurant’s website, you’ll see a link that says “click here to tell us what you’re hungry for.” Fill in your favorite dish and send it off. Nestor regularly pulls suggestions from this (ever growing) list and incorporates the dishes onto his menu (which includes five to ten different, constantly changing daily specials). The best part is, the day a particular (suggested) dish is featured at the restaurant, the person who submitted it on the website is invited to dine at House – and enjoy that dish – for free.
