Opening a New Fine Dining Restaurant


Very talented young Chef with exceptional experience looking, with his wife who has not been in the restaurant business, to open his first restaurant with the financial support of his family.


We began with a training session for the entire family on the owning and operating a restaurant.

Once the family had confidence to move forward, we searched for the proper location and negotiated the purchase and lease of the property.

Next we created the professional support team.

  • Interior Designer
  • Kitchen Designer
  • Architect
  • Liquor License/Real Estate Attorney
  • Expediter
  • Building Contractor
  • Public Relations
  • Equipment company

We continued to coach the chef/restaurateur for the four months from the time of acquiring the property til opening the restaurant:

  • Lease assistance
  • Operational analysis
  • Pro forma projections
  • Advising in all aspects of the process


Restaurant was selected by Craig LeBan restaurant critic of The Philadelphia Inquirer as The Best New Restaurant of 2012. Plus numerous other awards for the finest dining and top chef of Philadelphia.
