Three's a Crowd

Okay, I had an idea the other day that needs brainstorming. The concept is a restaurant called “Three’s Company.” It’s a restaurant for couples. No table seats more than two people. The menu is built around meals for couples. The ambiance is romantic. And so on.

Obviously I haven’t taken this idea much beyond the basic concept. What do you think? What could a restaurant do to cater specifically and exclusively to couples?

  1. We actually have something similar in Milwaukee called Two. It’s more of a bar/post dinner drinks place, but the basic idea is the same. I’ve never been there and don’t know anyone who has, but thought it was an interesting concept. It’s also relatively new and I don’t know how it’s doing, but I think it suffers a little from being too date-like and almost contrived. It’s not we’re just going out on a date for drinks, it’s we’re going out on a Date. I could see such a place being fun for Valentine’s Day or something but otherwise it just seems too set up, but maybe that’s just me.

  2. That’s a really interesting concept, but it seems a little pushy. Like, if you go there but don’t end up making out, does that reflect poorly on your relationship? I think I was hoping for something a little classier. Either way, I see your point about date vs. Date. I think there would have to be something really unique about it that would make it better for a dinner date than any other nice restaurant.

  3. So the theme is “pairs” and maybe the emblem is a poker hand with a pair of Kings and a pair od Queens and an ace. Dishes could be ordered as a pair and either contrasting or complimenting. Fajitas and Stir Fry (complimenting, both come out sizzling [but are different ethnicities]), OR Noodle Stir Fry and Seafood/Meat Pasta (complimenting, both noodle based dishes), or Chicken and fish, but that they share a side (Complimenting, same side).
    Or a Wine Menu where you could pick any of a number of red wines with a white wine. But customers order any of these as a single item.
    The idea is to have something in common, but also something very different.
