Random thought: without googling, can you think of any sitcoms that center around a restaurant? I can't, off the top of my head.
@zompus Kitchen Confidential, Whites, later seasons of Roseanne, and kinda-sorta Cheers (bar, not restaurant, but similar sort of dynamic).
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
