The Real Fire Camping Restaurant

The Real Fire Camping Restaurant
  [vote for,

This restaurant would just have earth ground floors and have rock circles where real fires would be going. Not really the lots-of-flame and smoke real fire but the more calmed and hot slowly burning fire. Then you would be given all types of perfect little things to place on to the big clean rocks inside the fire, like tortillas to make the mexican volcano a quesadilla you can only make while camping. Thin slices of nice meat -- like being camping but you remembered to bring everything.

Even better. See "Lunches", 8 paragraphs down the page. http://www.tightlin....com/fish_rogue.htm

Weber Grill Restaurant http://www.webergrillrestaurant.com/
A baked, charcoal grill restaurant in Chicago. Just like a backyard BBQ, but more expensive. [Laughs Last, Oct 04 2004]


       Haven't you heard? Real camp fires are being stamped out (by the Boy Scouts, Girl Guides, etc.) as not environmentally friendly (or something).
DrCurry, Sep 26 2003

       i heard life was generally being stamped that way too?
Floppo, Sep 26 2003

       Hah. Boy Scouts and Girls Scouts. Real camping involves intoxicants, fire, and dangerous animals. Bah. +

       With s'mores for dessert (+)

       For dessert you get a banana which has been incised on one side, stuffed with chocolate buttons and then wrapped in tin foil.

       you'll probably have to sing songs too...

       What about no smoking laws?

       I like it, but think that well crafted gas fired campfires would probably be more likely. Probably wouldn't be able to aircondition the place because you'll need to pull in so much fresh air so I guess we won't have one 'round these parts. (Maybe in the winter when the temperature dips below 70.) I guess I'll just have to stick with my favorite smoky barbecue restaurants.

       Char-grilled non stop marshmallow [link], please... +

       Thing is that sort of restaurant would only attract clients a few times -- camp-cooked food isn't usually known for its rare flavor (briquet a la starter...) and most folks outgrow it as their children grow up. So you'd have a problem with customer retention.

       Amazing, bakeable idea. I'd make it an international-camp fire cuisine restaurant... each country has its own style and dishes, don't you think? It'd be a nice way to learn about other cultures.

       Neat idea. (WTAGIPBAN)
krelnik, Sep 27 2003

       Wouldn't it be ironic if the next mega-forest fire were started by boy scouts?
RayfordSteele, Sep 28 2003

       Stone-grill restaurants are fairly common... your meal comes uncooked, and you get a large (very hot) stone on which to cook it. Of course, it turned out I was a lousy chef!   

       I've had a similar deal at a Japanese restaurant where they bring out a pot of water with a meths burner, and you cook your own meat and veges. That was much tastier...
the_jxc, Sep 29 2003

       OH HELL YES !!!!!! But they would HAVE to be open for breakfast . there ain't nuthing like bacon and eggs over a camp fire !!!!!!!
zippyt, Sep 30 2003

       Mmmm, egg on a stick.
FarmerJohn, Oct 01 2003

       ... and more baked beans than you can eat. Guaranteed to make you real popular all day.
PeterSilly, Oct 01 2003

       ...and long into the night! Good idea, [Floppo]. +
k_sra, Oct 01 2003

       This is like Korean BBQ. You sit down and they bring some meat and other things. You put the food on the BBQ, and cook it. The fancy ones have wood charcoal, which is really something else. The BBQ is right in the table, btw.   

       It's good stuff. Around $30 a person.
