MORE ARE USING SOCIAL MEDIA TO LEARN ABOUT RESTAURANTS

In November 2009, only three out of 10 consumers (30%) reported that they used social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Yelp, YouTube and MySpace to learn about restaurants. One year later, there has been a seven percentage-point gain in consumers who indicate that they use social media to learn about restaurants.

Of those who follow or learn about restaurants via social media sites, two-thirds report that they do so in order to get promotional deals (67%) or to learn about new items (66%). Fewer consumers use social media to find out where free food is being offered by restaurants (37%), learn about new restaurant locations (29%) and check out new advertisements (25%).

ONLINE REVIEWS ARE A TRUSTED SOURCE

In both November 2009 and November 2010, approximately 40% of consumers indicated that they consulted online sources for restaurant reviews. Over the course of the past year, however, online reviews appear to have gained clout with consumers. In November 2009, approximately three-fourths of consumers (77%) who consulted online reviews trusted them completely or somewhat, but by November 2010, the proportion of consumers with partial or complete trust in online reviews had risen to 85%.

Consumers report that they use online reviews mainly to learn about the restaurant in general (77% in both 2009 and 2010). Other top reasons for consulting such reviews are to make sure the restaurant is worth the money that would be spent to go there, and to learn which dishes are best to order (52% for both in 2010).

BARTENDER SHAWN MORIARTY

THE MAJESTIC RESTAURANT IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THAT ACCLAIMED KANSAS CITY BARTENDER SHAWN MORIARTY HAS JOINED OUR STAFF AND WILL BEGIN SERVING KC’S BEST COCKTAILS BEHIND OUR BAR BEGINNING WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 8.

“We are delighted to have such a professional, talented and accomplished bartender working behind our bar” said Frank Sebree, who co-owns The Majestic Restaurant with his wife, Jolyn. “We think Shawn’s interesting and classic cocktails will be the perfect complement to our fantastic dry-aged steaks and nightly live Jazz. As a native of Kansas City, I can’t imagine a better ‘Kansas City’ experience than drinking Shawn’s classic Old Fashion while eating a perfectly dry-aged KC Strip and listening to Bram Wijnands, Rod Fleeman and Tommy Ruskin play KC’s best live jazz in the historic Fitzpatrick’s Saloon Building. We think Shawn will be a terrific addition to our team and are very much looking forward to his arrival!”

Shawn Moriarty has been a professional bartender for more than 20 years, including head bartender at Jazz A Louisiana Kitchen, The City Tavern and most recently at The R Bar. Shawn’s skill behind the bar has earned him numerous honors and his hand-crafted cocktails have earned him high praise in both local and national media.
