The Bavarian Chef

What we've done

The Bavarian Chef is a family-owned and operated authentic German restaurant in Madison, Virginia. Since 1974, The Bavarian Chef has been proudly providing its customers with delicious food and exceptional hospitality, earning it praise from esteemed magazines such as The New York Times and Bon Appetit. Given the restaurant’s ever-growing popularity, the team at The Bavarian Chef felt that it was time to give their old website a much needed redesign.

The main goal of this redesign was to provide The Bavarian Chef with a new, modernized website. To accomplish this, our team used a pre-built WordPress theme that aligned with the client’s industry and brand. We also ensured that this theme would be compatible with WooCommerce, so that the client would have the option to add eCommerce to the website in the future. We also added greater functionality to the website through the use of plugins and integrations, including a calendar for upcoming events and a notification bar to display at the top of pages. All in all, the final result is a clean, modern website that provides a better user experience and highlights The Bavarian Chef’s tasty offerings.
