Default How is a food supply managed in a restaurant

I was just wondering if this is the right place to ask this question.
Maybe yes, maybe not. So I'll just go ahead and ask.

I wonder how a restaurant manages to offer so many choices in its
menu. Do they cook at after an order arrives or is it already pre-
cooked?

Means? (I'm Confused
I take it to mean that food is pre-cooked. Am I right?

They were teasing you.

the short answer is that, in many restaurants, the food is
cooked to order.

And, in others, the food is pre-cooked and either kept warm,
or is micro-waved when a customer orders it.

It just depends on the quality of the restaurant.

No. It means that is almost every place some of the food is made in advance and
some is cooked to order. Your plate may have some of both on it.

Example: baked potato. You dang well know that you aren't going to sit and wait
for this to be cooked up! Same with prime rib. The chef started it before you
were headed to the place! Same with soup. Even the salad, unless they are
using bag salad. Now if you order something like a hamburger, it cooks up fast
enough that it is made to order.

Asking this question simply means you have never cooked even in your own kitchen!

...and in some, it's just sitting there in a sous vide bag waiting to be warmed.
