Very interesting article in Forbes about how to run a restaurant.

Your humble master of ceremonies here at the Door almost certainly will never run a business, but if I did, a restaurant would probably be the one I'd like to try. How about an All-Hot restaurant--the best spicy-hot dishes from Thai, Mexican, and Chinese cuisine, along with Buffalo chicken wings?

(Update: some of my family members thought this was too narrow; what do people who don't like spicy food do? My first answer was, let 'em eat at another restaurant! But upon reflection, I decided the restaurant could be "Hot and Cold": the spicy foods would be accompanied by famous cool drinks and foods, such as mint juleps and gazpacho and lemon sorbet.)
