The Restaurant Life

As my last 20 days of business in El Sobrante Count down, I feel a little sense of well anxiety.  I Look back on the last 3 years and I am so happy to have been able to stay open, The Lion's Den allowed for me to continue to operate keeping 10 employees out of the unemployment line, in an economy where jobs were few and far between.  I couldn't imagine adding to what had already been one of the toughest economical times we have and probably ever will see. 
 Being in business is not just about me, but about my staff and guest they are as much a part of me and my existence as anyone can be. I look forward to continuing to be just what I am "Simply a good cook", hoping my Casual Traditional American Concept will continue to be what my guest enjoy. Nothing fancy, just like you do at home only we do it for you:)
 Though I am experiencing some strange happenings around the Pinole location I can only say we are moving along and still have a target date of Mid-March.  The  negativity and well let us say harassment does not measure up to the huge support and positive motivation from my community.  I look forward to bringing a positive business to my new location,  I hope someday the few who oppose my presence in Pinole will accept me as a neighbor.
In Closing....

but also dream; not only plan, but also believe"
