I think the first comment here was wondering if "The Restaurant" is the name of any piece of work. Mainly because that's whati was wondering, though. :) [[Special:Contributions/108.162.208.23|108.162.208.23]] 18:31, 25 January 2016 (UTC)

If there's a restaurant scene in that movie, that might be my guess.72.193.171.120 00:40, 23 September 2013 (UTC)
