This is thread is a little evil
but ya'll have been so helpful with all my other questions and respect your opinions.
In near future I will be opening a new restaurant. A dessert-only restaurant to be exact. I told you this was an evil thread! I'm on LAWL still so think how hard it is for me designing desserts that I can't eat (but DH is very helpful in that dept.)
I was hopeing soming of you would have some diet friendly desserts that I could include on my menu. Not neccessarily LAWL but low-fat/low-calorie. I'm also looking for some good vegan/vegetarian desserts if ya'll have any of those. I want to make sure I cover as much market as possible.
Also, I'd be happy to take any name suggestions. Just to give a little background...This is inspired by one of my best friends who diagnosed with a brain tumor a couple years ago and has the best outlook on life. Her motto is "Life is too short. I'll eat dessert whenever I want." She's honestly my hero. So, I want my restaurant to be a place where you can just hang out and be with your friends and enjoy great dessert without feeling like you have to eat a salad to be bad.
I'm thinking mid-scale, yet cozy. Thinking about Moroccan/jewel tone color scheme... deep purples, reds, oranges, yellows and blues. To me these colors say decadent and rich.
I'll be serving traditional desserts like cakes and pies but also other assorted pastries (very sinful). I'll serve various beverages from Soda to Wine to Coffee. My target is the 20 to 30 age range, women and couples.
I live in a college town, where there are a lot of international students. Also there is a Mercedes Benz plant here so lots of German Engineers are coming into the area. The area where I want to set up shop is in the heart of Downtown, very close to the University. There's going to be a brand new Federal Building in the near future. So lots of people moving into town.
I've brainstormed a few names (see below) but would love to hear some of your ideas.
Ganache, Delectable, Luscious, Blissful Temptations, Tempt Me, Redemption (pay for you sin), Original Sin, Indulge
Sorry this post is so long.
But I'm really excited and would love your feedback.
