    Default If you owned/ran a restaurant...

    What type would it be? What would it be called? What would you serve?

    Pretend you don't have to worry about profits or whatever, just make the restaurant of our dreams

    Escobri's Dine-in. I would serve all types of food including bbq, pastries and dessert. At an affordable price =)

    Assuming I had the ability to cook it correctly? A French restaurant. It's just my favourite cuisine. Indulgent, elegant and has the best tasting dishes in my opinion. Ideally I'd like to do it in Australia and highlight fresh, seasonal Australian produce with a Summer menu that compliments the seafood.

    Gave up on that dream a while ago though

    I always fantasized about owning a seafood restaurant.

    I'd serve lactose free dairy products definitely like pizza, ice cream and mac and cheese. Although mac and cheese without real cheese is probably terrible.

    I'd recreate Bob's Burgers and get people to play all the characters.

    I'd run a restaurant where I made all different types of cuisine, but I'd only make one menu a day. Guests wouldn't know what was being served until they arrived (I'd try to make as many dishes without allergens or tweaked versions...whole family has food issues, so I'd want people to know they can eat safely even if it's not something they'd like). First come, first serve, once we're out of food, that's it!

    I'd call it "God Sam It!"

    Tablet + credit card reader + note and coin slot at the table so people can order their own food and theres pictures+nutritional info for everything and breakfast is available all day. The rest would be pretty standard restuaraunt fare.

    Unless I have unlimited seating and space then seating is time based and you are given 10 minutes, if you havent ordered your food by then because your too busy tweeting and texting then you get kicked out and the the next group is sent in. From then on you are given 45 minutes * weight of food in kilos/number of people so dont waste time instagraming your food or whatever.

    Steak and Taters Restaurant with a bar. But the main draw is that the every server and cook each get a slap a week. . Want to order something to your exact snowflake specifications, that could be a slap. Cop an attitude to the server, that could be a slap. Want come in five minutes before we close, that could be a slap from everyone there.

    Organic vegan. But I'd have a strict rule about people with dreadlocks (e.g. they get shot) because I can't stand them and they give the rest of us veggies a bad name.

    Holy trout... Thank god some of you don't run restaurants O_O

    Maybe you guys would be more comfortable owning, say, a wrestling company. Or being the head of a dictatorship.

    The first five people that enter the restaurant would be killed and served as that's days meat.

    I'd call it John Doe's Meat Emporium

    It would be called You Get What You're Given. There would be a price that might vary day to day and there would be prices for "Food" and "Drink" and the people would get what they are given.

    Sometimes the customer has to be told that they're wrong
