Occasionally we review local restaurants but none like the one Sylvie at Soul Fusion Kitchen has just visited; The French Laundry in Napa Valley. This is a great post, she'd always wanted to dine there and she tells not only the menu, which is amazing, but all she had to accomplish just to get the reservations. Do give it a read.
This did bring something to mind. What would my restaurant be like, if I'd ever given it a try? If you are a foodie and you must because you're reading a food blog, or more likely, have a food blog--what would your restaurant be like? Be honest we've all dreamed of one. Would it be fancy, with a famous chef and linen napkins and a seating only by reservations made months in advance or a burger joint with one grill, you behind the grill, and a line out the door for the eleven stools at the counter? Would you serve home cookin' recipes from your grand mom or a menu like The French Laundry?
Me? A breakfast joint that also serves pie. My beloved loves pie for breakfast. I'd have specials for the day and always two or three pies to choose from. What's on the menu? The basics and don't forget the grits. Always biscuits and cinnamon rolls and pots of properly brewed tea. It would have to be small with a few tables, a counter, and a grill that was visible. Nothing like talking to the cook while while your breakfast is being prepared.
There are so many variations to choose, if you dream of opening an establishment share your dreams with us.
