We’re like anxious first time parents. We can’t wait for our new restaurant to get off the ground. We’re terribly excited, and a little scared. Work has begun. Don’t get too excited, it’s going to be a while. Our landlord has work to do. Then we get in there. Then it opens.
You’ll know we’re there because all of that paper and tape will come off of the windows. I’m sure it’s not going to surprise you that I want our construction to be a transparent process. We’re not a fan of hiding behind things. So the first thing I plan to do when this space gets in our hands is to take down those shades.
Want to hear something funny about that? I was telling our contractor that idea, and his concern was that the folks working on the building will be distracted by attractive people walking by. Well… he didn’t exactly say “attractive people,” that’s my interpretation, but you get the idea.
