Writer's Block: In the Shoes of an Extravagant Restaurant Owner
If you started a restaurant, what would it serve, what would it look like and what would you name it? You have an unlimited budget.

I don't know what I'd call it, but I'd run an updated old-fashioned soda parlor/candy store. Homemade ice creams, pies, and cakes at a long diner counter up front. In the back, a handmade candy store with truffles, caramels, marshmallows, and so on, in the traditional glass jars on top of glass countertops.

I'd love to open a shop selling gelato (mmmmmm ... gelato ....) and various yummy baked goods, like Nanaimo bars (homemade-like, not the industrial style slabs you can get in the grocery stores nowadays), chocolate chip cookies ... you know ... comfort food.

There's a gelateria to die for on the White Rock pier. (See Dolce Gelato at the bottom of this article.) If I ever hear of the old Italian couple there talking about retirement, I'm gonna make an offer.
