Canadian, Eh?

My friend's dad has a Master Chef degree or something he got in Germany. He's been moving back and forth from Canada to Germany his whole life.
So he decided to open a restaurant called Canadian, Eh? It hasn't opened it yet, cause he's waiting for the government to complete the contracts.

But so far it's really cool.
It's a small restaurant. It will seat 28. The kitchen was so small he has to bring it out and along the restaurant, so it's a little cramped.

Next time I go there I'll get a picture.

He's going to have a Canadian menu which he uses all the time.
The every week he is going to have a selection of 4 or 5 European dishes which will constantly change.

He's been talking with me, and he wants me to work for him. It's a possibility.
He's going to look into running the restaurant with his wife. But if he needs to hire someone, I'm first on his list. My fingers are crossed. If I get this I can finally quit Montanas, and learn to cook some real meals from a real cook.

That'll be great! The best experience for a budding chef! Offer to put in some hours for free to get them started and to show your willingness to contribute.

Of course he is.
Even if it's not on the menu, it can be done. :)
