Culinary Guide Shop's Vision

Menu Development, Recipe Planning, Research and Development Made Easy Through Our Process

In a time of declining food values, we work with those businesses who want to create a better culinary experience for their guests and with those who are bottom line oriented.  Inspired by the guide shops that aid fisherman through the ins and outs of their trade, Culinary Guide Shop is designed to be more than a restaurant consultant, but a partner in your culinary journey. Whether it is a new brand or an existing business, we will lead you through the waters - from sourcing to menu to execution.
