Questions about design

Imagine a restaurant. You walk inside, what’s the first thing you want to see? This thought has been bugging me for a week now. I’m still waiting to hear whether I’ll get the place for my restaurant, but if I do, I keep thinking how to make it so that when people walk in, they instantly see the best side of the restaurant. Like should there be someone meeting them, or a view of people dining, or the bar? These questions and everything design related have been all over my mind.
