Our Vision

Once Upon A Time We Were One

There was a center: a common space where we came from, at some point in time. We are not talking about Africa, and we are not going on some tangent about the Big Bang Theory… it was something deeper and older than that.

It was a space that combined stories, traditions, various forms of pain & happiness into beautiful cosmic unity.

That space is still present inside and around all of us.

Well…what if we were to physicalize that space into one room, leading ourselves back to this level of connection? Where sharing food and giving homage to our human traits would become part of a re-found tradition that would shatter the daily obstacles separating our world? One world..or I should say…one restaurant.
