Thanks all! Husker, nice of you to post my site, but there was a reason I left it out of the review, 'gainst the rules.
farmerman, I liked your post better before you edited. Now, here's the thing....if I did take you up on your original suggestion, it would have to be a very trendy, chic downtown resto, and I would call it "Kok - Rauch" with a funny French hat accent over the 'o' and an umlaut over the 'u'. We would serve the average euro-trash fare, but would also start a media buzz about the signature complimetary treats....crispy spiced edible cockroaches. People would be horrified, but intrigued, and with a nice presentation and plenty of wine, it just might take off...
But seriously folks, I once made a joke to another chef about looking into opening a restaurant in Yorkville called 'Quoi?' and the gimmick would be you would never know when we would be open, but the food would be worth it. So, every day, you would have to call to find out whether it was lunch, dinner, both, or closed. He actually didn't know I was kidding, and went into a long serious discussion about how while that might work for a while, it wasn't a good long-term plan.
I don't think he gets out much.
