How to Create a Restaurant – Animal Crossing: New Horizons Wiki Guide – IGN

Welcome to IGN's wiki guide for Animal Crossing: New Horizons. This page will detail everything you need to know about creating a restaurant in Happy Home Paradise, the new paid DLC that dropped November 5, 2021. As you progress through the game, you'll be able to decorate more facilities.


How to Create a Restaurant


After decorating 12 homes and the school facility, Lottie will ask you if you'd like to decorate a new restaurant or cafe. If you haven't yet reached this point, no worries! Check out our How to Create a School and How to Unlock Everything in Happy Home Paradise pages for help.

It doesn't matter which you choose first; if you select the cafe you'll immediately be able to decorate the restaurant afterwards, and vice versa.

Lottie will take you to the restaurant location. This will be your first facility with two rooms to decorate, and each has its own requirements. Hit the down button on the left Joy-Con to enter decorating mode, then press the right button on the left Joy-Con to open the furniture menu. At the top, you'll see the number of pieces of furniture required.

For the restaurant, you'll need the following items.

Dining Hall Required Furniture:


  • Cash Register x1
  • Table x1
  • Chairs x4

Kitchen Required Furniture:

  • Stovetops x2

When you're done, name your restaurant and choose the facility staff. The job is complete!
