Is it a new restaurant/bakery business? What's the theme? What types of baking are you planning?

looks like fun!....

Hi everyone!
Yeah, it's is definitely new. Our own concept entirely revolving around the brick oven. We'll do varying types of daily bread(the stuff we currently take to farmer's market)at the outset and pizza ,salads and a daily lunch. The daily lunch dishes and stuff will get a quick shot in the brick oven to reheat and then off to the table. We have a local community theater next door that does about 6 productions a year and we will certainly do something special each time to go along with them. The theme is defintely Tuscan, we are texturing the walls and are considering shot peening the existing concrete floor and then possibly staining it to resemble cobblestone street but that is still up in the air. I'll have to post more photos of the interior as I get time. We have done nearly all the work on the almost year long renovation(with the exception of plumbing and HVAC). The builiding was built circa 1870 and from what we have found it was the original post office for our town. The postmaster had living quarters in the upstairs.
Thanks for the kind words, they are very encouraging.

Dutch,

Looks and sounds great! I'd eat at a place like that weekly!

Best of luck.

Hi everyone!
Now...I finally woke up and realized I hadn't posted on this thread in toooo long! SJ it is in a little town called Sardis...about 45 minutes south of Memphis TN about one mile off of the interstate.
I will post some progress pics tomorrow as it seems to be uncooperative at this time.
Best
