If I had my way, I would have a food shop that served salad lyonnaise, Cheeseboard-style pizza, grilled calamari, steak frites, banh cuon, karaage, fatty tuna and suadero tacos.

On the drinks list: Melville pinot noir, Japanese (like Orion and Hitachino) and Belgian (Delirium Tremens, maybe some lambic) beers.

For dessert, red velvet cupcakes, macarons, home made ice cream and matcha tea cakes served with Philz coffee and Fortnum & Mason tea.

People would sit on long, communal tables and eat family style. Just so I could have a little bit of everything.
