SO YOU WANT TO BE A RESTAURATEUR? KEEP THIS LIST HANDY. SOME OF THE MANY THINGS YOU WILL NEED:

More money than you think.

Space in a good neighborhood, near your home, with a reasonable landlord attached.

A liquor license.

At least 2 months of debate about a name.

An architect.

A kitchen designer.

Contractors of every stripe (but not an interior designer, not really).

An accountant.

A lawyer.

Someone to dissect your business plan.

A bicycle for getting between home, restaurant, and City Hall, the three places you’ll be going to and from the most. You won’t have time for any other exercise.
