// 4 The Serving/Presentation Area
If you are grilling large quantities of food you will need ample staging space beyond the grill, and you may wish to add a warming drawer, as well. Will you be staging food at the outdoor kitchen and then moving it to another area, or will you serve from the outdoor kitchen surface? In either case, think about how much space you will need to properly stage or serve your prepared foods, including non-grill items like salads, breads, desserts, and beverages.
Do you need a fridge for cold foods and beverages in the serving area? Look around your indoor kitchen, including the island, and consider how much space you need to stage a meal. Then plan your outdoor kitchen.
Design your outdoor kitchen to keep the great food, drinks and conversation flowing!
