More kitchen items, plants, adorable paintings - now to save the money for 3 weeks or I won't be able to buy it, lol. Another short hair style for women, I can't wait for that (even though it's more about the restaurant than what hair styles come with it =P) and a dress with longer skirt.

I'm confused about something, the employees at the fast food restaurant have badges on their vests, what does that mean?

There is a restaurant chain in the states that people wear buttons all over their vests known as "flair".  It's a joke in a few movies including office space and a few others I can think of but not their names.

I'm not stoked about the restaurant theme, but I'm glad to see some new content. Things have gone quiet in terms of official news lately.

I'm already kind of bored with TS4 though. Unless they release content that really excites me, I might pass on some of it until they start bundling it. I'm not knocking the pack generally, it just isn't my thing. If they have enough CAS and build items that draw me in I'm more likely to buy it than I will based on the restaurant content.

Get Weird with Experimental Food in The Sims 4 Dine Out Game Pack

Hi Simmers! The Sims 4 Dine Out Game Pack* is coming on June 7, and includes the ability for your Sims to go out to eat, and own and run their own restaurant. But that's not all that's on the menu.

Today we  wanted to talk about some of the new dishes so that we can fully savor the flavor and whet all our appetites for this fantastic game pack. Tired of the food metaphors? Strap in, it’s going to get worse.



The Sims 4 already has a wide variety of recipes, running the gamut from real-world favorites to Sims classics. We were eager to experiment in a more ambitious culinary realm, so we set them loose to create a huge array of high concept, bizarre, tantalizing, Experimental Food.

The goal behind the experimental food is to wow your Sims. We wanted to create beautiful, avant-garde dishes that seem like they come from a celebrity chef on an amazing cable TV show. The dishes are bright, bold, and beautiful, and full of life with amazing new animations that you might not expect to see on a platter.



The flowing lava on the Volcano Pasta is gorgeous and amazing. The Jungle Moss Egg with Lavender Wisps looks like something from an alien world. And the savory Bacon Love Petals look like a dish that I’d gladly spend $19.99 on at a high end restaurant.

The food isn’t just a culinary feast for the eyes and the imagination. Your Sims will benefit from a slew of powerful and fascinating Moodlets that will represent exactly how your Sims feel about the flavors bombarding their digital palates. If you want, your Sims even have new social options to discuss their food.



We always try to make our game current with real world trends, and The Sims 4 Dine Out is no exception. Your Sims can eagerly photograph their meals. But, to take it a step further, all of these will turn into beautiful photographs for your Sim’s walls, or even their own restaurants! Your Sims can challenge themselves to complete the Experimental Food collection, which gives them a reason to try every dish in town.

We’re a bit hungry from all this food talk, so we’ll leave you here and find something to eat. Perhaps we’ll snack on Cubed Ahi with Veggie Wasabi Matrix? Yum!

The Sims 4 Dine Out Game Pack will be released on June 7, but there's still plenty to talk about. The burners are barely lit for what we have to show you. And no, the food puns will never stop.

Thank you @Bri for the link!
I looked at all the teaser trailers on that twitter account and see a lot of good-looking and/or interesting sims.
Hopefully, we'll get some new premade sims. I really don't want to go to a restaurant to find it's staffed by the Goths! (as much as I love the Goths...)

I think I'll be waiting for actual player reviews.  I have the musical chairs bug and the meet your date and they wave and disappear bug so I'd be curious to see if either of those show up in the game play of the pack.  As far as I know you can only visit the restaurant, as a customer, or manage one.  If you could be a chef or one of the wait staff I would find it more interesting.

11 Ways to Customize Your Restaurant in The Sims 4 Dine Out

Your Sims can do more than just visit restaurants in The Sims 4 Dine Out Game Pack*. If they're feeling a little more ambitious, potential restaurateurs and foodies can customize their own restaurant.

There are so many ways to tweak, add spice, re-arrange, and build your restaurant that… well, let’s stop talking and start explaining! We put together a list of ways you can customize a restaurant, and even a video showing what it's like to run your own. With these tips in-hand, you'll be able to improve overall star rating, leading to higher profit and success!

Give it a Name. What’s in a name? You tell us. No, seriously. Every restaurant needs a name and we’ve given you a quick and easy way to provide one for your latest food service establishment.

Pick the Aesthetic. If you’ve ever been to a restaurant review site, you know the setting and ambiance is a priority for restaurant goers. Get creative with your restaurant by making it a subterranean dungeon dining experience, or an outdoor garden, complete with a hedge maze. Put dining a few stories up to provide a view, or simply recreate your favorite hometown diner.



Stir in the Basics. The requirements for a Restaurant Venue are quite simple, which provides you with a lot of flexibility in making a unique one. You’ll need a place to use the restroom and clean up, the Host Station, Waiter Station, and Chef Station, and several Dining Spots. The Dining Spot isn’t just a table, but a combination of tables and chairs. Or, stools and tables. After all, people need to sit when eating. Sims aren’t goats!

Mix in Some Spicy Décor. If you have outdoor seating, but sure to place the all new Heat Lamp to keep your diners toasty. Add in the new booth object when you want variety from the typical dining chairs and stools. Give your kitchen that authentic feel with the food racks, and be sure to prominently display the Nectar Fridge so you look appropriate high end. Players who are themselves avid diners can place their Experimental food photographs on the walls. And, finally, the gorgeous, huge new aquariums will both look amazing and keep the day’s catch fresh for your new seafood restaurant. The decorative options in The Sims 4 Dine Out are truly the chef’s choice.



Design the Signage. One of our favorite new object suites in The Sims 4 Dine Out is our customizable sign set. Choose from a few blank signs which can be placed flat against the building, stick out, or place on the ground. Then, choose from a variety of symbols, letters, and colors, to create a sign that is unique to your restaurant. This is such a fun, simple creative tool to use with a variety of restaurants!

Define the Attire. Sims can wear practically anything, and we recognize it’s important for your stories that they look appropriate. Using a simple menu, you can define how customers dress when they arrive to dine at your restaurant. Is it a formal venue? Boom, choose formal. Do you want people to dress a little sillier? Maybe party is the way to go. Define the look from start to finish!



Clothe the Staff. Every restaurant has Chefs, Waiters, and Hosts, and they all need clothing! How much, and what, is completely up to you. You can quickly choose from a series of preset clothing, or you can enter Create a Sim for every role, and every gender for that role. Do you want your waiters wearing Bear Suits from The Sims 4 Outdoor Retreat Game Pack*, or perhaps the Knight costume from The Sims 4 Get Together*? Go for it. Perhaps you want to go classy with board shorts and bikinis for your host employees? Also possible. The clothing is so crucial for creating a thematic, hilarious, or real-world mimic and the choice is up to you.

Choose the Menu. Choosing the food should be an easy and tantalizingly delicious choice. And it is! Using a simple interface, you’re able to quickly select and preview menus like Diner, Brunch, Experimental, or Italian. But if you don't like the pre-set choices, you can always...

Customize a Menu. Like so many things in The Sims 4, you have the choice to customize something to make it YOUR story! You can load preset menus to tweak them slightly, or you can pick and choose each and every dish the restaurant serves. This includes the Appetizer, Main course, Dessert, and Drink options! The images are beautiful and vibrant and everything looks tasty. The hardest choice will be figuring out what NOT to serve at the restaurant!



Learn from My Library. If you aren’t sure where to begin with your restaurant, you can head over to My Library for six gorgeous pre-made restaurants that are included with The Sims 4 Dine Out. Chez Llama will show you just how beautiful a restaurant can be, while Hogan’s Burger Bar pays homage to The Sims 3 and is the neighborhood’s burger hangout. Naturally, The Diving Pelican is a seaborne seafood restaurant that will show you how the tail wags the fish. If you need inspiration, we’ll get you started!

Share to the Gallery. One of our favorite features of The Sims 4 is the Gallery, as it is the perfect way for our best creators to easily share their ideas. Plus, fans who are less inclined towards building can pick and choose from the best of the community. Be sure to share your restaurants to the Gallery as soon as you put the finishing touches on the menu! Also, it’s good to know that your staff outfits, customer dress code, and customized menu are all preserved with the physical restaurant as well!

The Sims 4 Dine Out Game Pack will be released on June 7. We can't wait to see what you create!

Things I get excited about:

You can set the dress policy for your customers -- something above "no shirt, no shoes, no service". My sims will finally get some use out of their formal clothes.
Two different types of booths.
At least two different placemats for children to color (a barn and a freezer bunny).
A larger aquarium.
Food critics.
Experimental food for my aliens.

And of course, the new lighting and whatever was meant by "CAS Changes Coming."
