Guests have a limited view into the kitchen; however the proj- ect team purposely allowed a large portion of the bakery to be in full view of customers. "Visual stimulation plays an important part in today's dining operation and we capitalized on this opportunity to showcase some back-of-the-house operation," says Khouw. The dish room is also central to the overall operation. "Having direct access to the dish room is a huge benefit since many of the smallwares used in the kitchen are processed through the dishmachine," Khouw says. "Typically, we like to locate the dish drop window close to the path of egress so that customers can drop off their dishes on the way out.

Knowing that the dish drop window can be unsightly, it is also in our best interest to conceal this area from view as you enter the servery.
