    I have been seeking a theme for a restaurant client for several months. I have not yet been able to find one that allows more than 2 serving sizes. Many restaurants want to offer Snack – Small – Medium – Large or 6-8-10-12 at different price points. From what I read here this is another, at best, 2 serve sizes theme. I’m not even sure I’m right there because the above graphics seem to allow 1 menu item to have a regular and sale price. When will developers look at the industry and observe what restaurateurs want?
    Each menu item needs to have up to 5 serve sizes and 5 associated price points to allow sufficient flexibility to fully list menus.
    I look forward to seeing a reply.

        Feel free to contact me as I may have other insights that will assist. I could even share my wishlist for a wp restaurant theme. The best I have found so far is one for a pizza shop but it is difficult to change and use. Really a menu plugin or page would be great.

          Chris- just wanted to let you know that Yummilicious has been released with a new feature – for each menu item you can now add any number of servings with different prices for each variation / portion.
          Thanks so much for the idea.

          I am sending you a review copy of the theme as well via hello[at]wpeka[dot]com.

          We are working on creating a full-fledged table reservation system now – but if you have any other ideas on what features you would like to see, I would love to hear from you.

          Cheers,
          Preeti
