You think running your restaurant is tough in this rocky economy?
How’d you like to be in charge of Smokey Bones Bar & Fire Grill, the
chain formerly known as Smokey Bones Barbecue & Grill before Darden
Restaurants unloaded it last year? One problem: New owners Sun Capital
Partners had just begun to reposition this 73-unit concept when the
recession kicked in. Another: Many people think Smokey Bones had gone
out of business. No wonder its management is offering December-only
deals to customers that other operators don’t dare match. But what
will it take to attract customers once these limited-time offers expire?
Since 1957, Ocean Garden Mexican shrimp has been recognized as the
finest quality shrimp available. The choice of top restaurant chefs,
Ocean Garden All Natural Mexican Shrimp is your guarantee of premium
quality, consistency, and a commitment to environmental sustainability.
EVEN FOR FRANK GEHRY, THE DEVIL IS IN THE
Hire a hotshot architect like David Rockwell or Adam Tihany to
design your restaurant and it becomes a high-profile project the minute
they come on board. But these guys, talented as they are, are small
potatoes next to Frank Gehry, the world’s most-well known, not to
mention wildest, architect. So what would happen if Gehry ventured onto
Rockwell and Tihany’s turf and designed a restaurant? Now we know,
thanks to the opening last month of FRANK, located inside the revamped
Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) in Toronto. Does Gehry’s ability to
create mind-bending buildings translate to an exciting restaurant space?
And, oh yeah what’s on the menu at FRANK?
