(2) Sat May 14 2005 22:30 PST: I came up with the perfect name for my restaurant: "Overkill". It signifies everything I want in a restaurant. I don't think I actually want to have a restaurant, though. Too much work, not enough payoff.

I don't even know if you guys are vegetarians, or not, but a restaurant named Overkill would either have to be vegan, or maybe whatever it's called when you only eat fallen fruit, or it would have to be all meat-based. I don't think there's a middle ground with a restaurant name like Overkill.
I think you're mistaking having a restaurant for /working in/ a restaurant. Once you've hired the requisitie underlings (chefs, dishwashers, waiters, barpersons, door staff, table manager, accountant) the actual owning surely becomes more of an issue of what to eat, which wines go well with it and who to fire in the name of productivity. TV chefs try and make it look hard work because, well, the market is already dilute enough, isn't it?
