That is the name of my imaginary restaurant.

  • One big table that would seat about 20 people.  
  • Family style seating.  
  • There would be up to 2 seating times per night. 
  • Fixed menu each night and would include 3 courses. 
  • Reserve seats in advance for the dinner you feel like eating. 
The Menu:  I have worked on a few dishes that I would feel comfortable scaling and doing in larger quantities.  I want to be able to provide a variety of meals that range from family friendly to selective up-scale dishes.  Each night would be priced differently but a flat fee.  Some would be an all you can eat style some would be served 'as is.'
  • Herb Crusted Pork Tenderloin on Rosemary Polenta topped with a sweet raspberry sauce. 
  • Pan Fried Balsamic Lemon Peel Chicken with risotto. 
  • New York Strip with whipped potatoes and roasted asparagus.
  • Homemade Lasagna of freshly made pasta and red sauce. Fresh baguettes.
  • Macadamia crusted Ahi with a mango salsa.
  • Breakfast at DINNER! Eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, french toast, grits, hash browns.
  • Grilled TeryiakiPork Tenderloin on coconut rice and grilled pineapple, sauteed leeks.
  • Roasted Sage Chicken with scalloped potatoes and green beans. 
I would bake fresh breads and make my own dressings and desserts. Or I could open dessert up to a local sweets maker and have them sponsor it. Coupons, gift bags, etc.  

I also thought it would be fun to sell the leftovers for people that wanted to take what was left home.  Waste not.  I also wanted to make some cookies each night to send home with each party. A little something to remember me by.  Or maybe the Reeve hand dipped cherries and mints.

Anyone have any thoughts?

what's the hook? the reason I would want to eat there? 20 strangers?

Bring your family, bring your wife, a date. Be neighbors. Enjoy a meal. Get some conversations going, make a new friend. The gimmick is that it is a set menu. Private, intimate, delicious, unique. IDK...just working through the idea at the moment.
