Is it just me or does that description read like something from The Onion?

Big, splashy restaurant openings with lots of "experience" are out of style right now. The recession is easing, but hardly out of the woods yet, and investors and diners aren't chasing high concepts. This seems like an idea whose time has already past. Someone is destined to burn through a lot of money before it folds. That name is a self-parody too. D'oh!  ::)

One of the reasons that I created my website www.FoodServiceResource.com is for people that are interested in going into the resto biz, but don't have a lot of experience.  There you can find downloadable checklists, templates and other free tools.  Since my website is FREE for Restaurant Operators (and anyone else interested in going there), this isn't shameless self-promotion.

LOL!!!! I thought for sure it was a hoax at first. Sounds like a terrible concept to me - and I also thought "d'oh" immediately.

Wow. Just wow.

Ah, I overlooked that it said Do would be at 955 WEST Marietta St., so yes, that wouldn't be the space I was thinking of on Marietta St that used to be various other "ill-fated" restaurants.  "Acoustix Lounge and Bar" you say, Sal?  Doesn't sound like my cuppa tea.  And with Antico so close, I don't see myself getting pizza from Do, especially if I have to navigate past a video waterfall and sea of iPads.  D'oh!

00 or Double zeros or Double O...there may have been cocktails involved when I was told...is opening April 16 or 18th in what I THINK may be the old Good Ol Days. They said it was across from American Pie. I am assuming the name refers to the flour in the pizza dough? Eye-talian. I for one am glad the pizza wars aren't over :)

ETA - found it - it's Double Zero
