What is a Charger Plate?
A charger plate is a large, decorative base setting for which other dinnerware is placed on top of during formal occasions such as catered events, weddings, upscale parties, banquets, or in fine dining restaurants. Also known as service plates, under plates, or chop plates, charger plates are merely decorative, and are not meant to come in direct contact with food. Charger plates provide an elegant way to serve multiple course meals, where each course is served in its own separate bowl or plate, and placed on top of the charger. Charger plates are available in a variety of colors, materials, lengths/diameters, and shapes for you to choose from to match the décor, mood, and style of your particular event. Chargers are used in multiple course meals as an elegant way to serve salad plates , soup bowls , and main dinner entrees in order to create unique presentations for guests. Why Should I Use a Charger Plate? Charger plates have many practical purposes, besides the fact that they provide elegance and enhance the table setting’s décor. Not only do they anchor the dining table, create ambiance, and are aesthetically pleasing to guests, chargers also protect the table and tablecloth from becoming dirty during service. Charger plates can catch pieces of food, and prevent spills and messes that would otherwise stain the tablecloth or flow onto the table. Chargers also help to retain the heat in dinnerware since they are placed directly underneath plates and bowls.

Designing Your Restaurant's Dining Room Layout
Your restaurant seating layout sets the scene for your guests' dining experience and separates you from competitors. However, it's not all about aesthetics. Does it follow all regulations? What is your seating capacity? Can your furniture handle constant use? Consider the following four important factors before opening or renovating your venue. 1. Regulations and Capacity Before considering potential restaurant dining room design ideas, you need to determine whether you'll be using one or multiple rooms and then allocate all available space. Local code requirements could determine how much square footage you need per customer, as well as aisle width. Contact your local fire department or other government agency to inquire about these measurements. Their decision will be influenced by the number and size of exits available at your venue. Once you've reviewed any regulations, you can decide how many square feet you want to allot per customer. Available space in your restaurant seating layout determines the comfort of your guests. According to the North American Association of Food Equipment Manufacturers (NAFEM) , the following chart lists the average allotted square feet per customer by service type. Type of Operation Space Allowance - Per Seat (Sq. Ft.) School Lunchroom / Cafeteria 9 - 12 Banquet Room 10 - 11 Table Service (Minimum) 11 - 14 College or Business and Industry Cafeteria 12 - 15 Table Service at a Hotel, Club, or Restaurant 15 - 18 Commercial Cafeteria 16 - 18 Counter Service Restaurant 18 - 20 You'll also need a passage area of 18" between tables and chairs. However, you might want to create wider aisles to accommodate wheelchairs. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires at least 36" wide aisles. Also, consider your venue's needs. Fine dining restaurants need to allow adequate room for meal carts for tableside service. Meanwhile, family-style restaurants may use bussing carts to clear tables. Both need enou
