Abstract

This study explores the relationship between Greek restaurants in Amsterdam and their clientele. Through a discussion of how they engage with how cultures may be authentically portrayed within restaurants, how ethnic food affects the customer through synaesthetic nostalgic remembrance, and the significance of taste acquired through the habitus on the restaurant, this study ultimately endeavours to highlight this interaction, and how they influence each other. The essential conclusion this study came to was that these interactions guided the restaurants to become socially embedded within their cultural setting
