If you started a restaurant, what would it serve, what would it look like and what would you name it? You have an unlimited budget.


First off, I wouldn't. But let's say I was just funding this venture and had someone good at it to manage it and do all the work involved. I'm not into food and not capable of keeping up with food service. But what I'd fund would rock. It wouldn't be that horribly expensive either. Your basic 24-hour diner. Burgers and eggs and po'boys and meatloaf, short order cooking, a sort of pleasant 1930s or 40s atmosphere, little bit of neon, people that know you serving it, and short order cooks that pay attention to what you ask for. Substitutions always easy, if you don't want the fries get a salad or a baked potato or whatever, put what condiments you want on it, pancakes come with six flavors of syrup choices, that sort of place. Low prices and good food, much of it fried on the spot. A good one like this is The Hummingbird Cafe in New Orleans. Cheap but good. Rob's Eats or something like that. LOL -- could always call it CAT FUD or something and put a neon cat face on the sign, when it's something like that you can indulge your personal tastes in what to call it too.

I wish your restaurant was down the street from me right now, it sounds like the kind of place I'd like, and I'm hungry! haha

mmm I visited New Orleans once, they DID have some of the best food, and I didn't even stop anywhere particularly famous

Yep. Standards for restaurants are high in New Orleans. Not least because non famous restaurants catering to locals have to keep to high standards. When I lived there it was amazing what you could get for cheap off the beaten path.
