Inspiration for a restaurant

These images are from a New York restaurant called Sweetiepie. I believe Sweetiepie is now closed but these images serve as beautiful inspiration for a restaurant I hope to one day own.

I was in need of directions one day and so I popped into a restaurant to ask for help. The owners were incredibly lovely. The restaurant was a family run business. The kind of restaurant where the staff would know every visitor by their first name. Except for me of course. I was new.

When I stepped inside the restaurant the interior caught my breath. It was still in its original 50/60s condition. The ceiling was peeling, the walls needed a new coat of paint and it needed work to bring it back to its former glory but I could see past all that. I imagined it alive with people, ordering food and drinks and listening to music on the jukebox. My mind went wild with all the possibilities and potential of the space.. and all this while trying to listen carefully to the directions. Whenever I drive past the restaurant these days I slow down hoping I will spot a 'For Sale' sign.
