Instead of a restaurant....
The pros (and there are no cons, IMO) are that it was a "dinner party experience" . Like minded foodies enjoying the cooking of the hosts. It was also an opportunity to eat homestyle "ethnic" food - inherently something you're not going to get in a restaurant. Here's my review of the evening:
Such an interesting enjoyable review of what sounded like a great experience!
I realize I wasn't explicit at all in my seeking the information --- I have had a passion, a yearning, a calling - to open a restaurant. I am put off by the hours, my age, and ........ I have recently been contemplating opening some form of a dinner club - and wondering about that feasibility - perhaps only open for dinners on Thurs, Fri, Sat and Sun. I would appreciate any guidance, suggestions, advice, words of wisdom or otherwise!
