Kitchen Nightmares: Sim Edition

Has your eatery gone downhill since its initial opening? Has it become dreary and empty of late? Are you losing money? Alternately...do you think your restaurant is the best in the country, and yet are bewildered that its losing money?

Perhaps then, it is time to call in some expert help...

Perhaps it is time for an overhaul.

In the cut-throat world of the restaurant business, some establishments soar to great heights whilst other crash to the ground with an uncomfortable bang. Sometimes the problem is the food, the area, the environment - and sometimes it's the manager or the chef who derail things. In Sim City, things are no different. During a hectic four months 10 flagging restaurants will be selected. Once selected a top chef in Sim City will begin visiting these restaurants to take a look around them in order to give some pointers.

And once the pointers have been given, the owners will be expected to better the appearance and quality of their establishment.

It's...going to get messy, people.

The eatery can be a pub restaurant, cafe, diner, former Michelin-Star restaurant - it's your choice!
Owner(s) of the restaurants can be YA to Elder
The restaurant must be of your own creation
Photoshopping and such will not be necessary
Follow the usual forum photograph rules.
Judges, please be prompt with your scores each round. If you canít get in your scores for whatever reason, please let me know at least a day in advance so emergency judges can be contacted.

Come on people, there's no need to be too afraid!

I'd love to, but I'm going on holiday for two weeks! How annoying!

Is it alright if I steal one of the names of the maxis made resturants because I was thinking maybe it turned into a franchise and the sims I was going to use to enter the constests have a different resturant but in the maxis made resturant name since they're part owners. Sorry if that sounded too confusing. I'm not good at explaining things :(

Mitzymoo, yes, you can take the name of the restaurant - just as long as the restaurant itself has been made by you, it's acceptable. :).

Wgroome, I think I must have submitted this just as most everyone is busy, :lol:. The applications will remain open for a bit longer however, so I do hope I recieve enough entries in the interim!

This is such a fun and interesting contest TRIriana! If my old s2 wasn't so - well, old and slow, I would have joined, but I hope to see a lot of nice entries from others! (And if you should need a judge - here I am...)

Well my dad booked a flight last night and the holiday is in the middle of this contest

Sorry :(

I'll keep the application stage open for another day or so, and if no one bites I'll ask bP to put it on hold or see if I can re-submit in a few weeks' time. I think I got it just as everyone is on holiday!

I would love to enter...but i'm really busy at the moment :(

I'd love to enter, once I figure out how to go about making my Sim actually own a restaurant and all. I haven't played enough since TS3 came out.

My game keeps crashing from some download or another that I haven't figured out to remove (it's tricking me, it used to crash my pc when the game loaded,now it waits until I'm doing something in game to crash my pc) or I would've had an entry done by now, . . . my wireless quit working last Sunday so I can't get on the net with my own pc. Troubles, troubles, troubles, one could lose her mind.
After I get an entry actually all the way complete, I'll load it onto a zip drive and come online from another pc and see if the contest is still a go.

There are so few takers this time around that I've sent bP a PM to close it. If there is more interest in the future I may re-submit. Thanks to those who were interested this time around. :).
