    So over on the main news page of SimsVIP they've just posted that a guru may have hinted the possibility of restaurants in the next game pack? I, as well as I'm sure many others have been wanting restaurants since Get To Work was released, restaurants play such a huge role in our sim's stories that we create, as well as adding loads more game play interactions. And in the first time since DLC releases I'm keeping my fingers crossed for restaurants. If we get restaurants then it would be the icing on the cake since we already have the ability to open and run our own cafes and bakeries... just as long as restaurants were more complex in the creating and operating aspects.

    Hopefully, instead of our sims having the ability to open their own restaurant we will be able to fully customize restaurants to their fullest potential, BUT... our sims went to work at the restaurant in an all new active culinary career instead of expanding the retail system of the game. I want to have the ability to build and customize my restaurants the way I want them to look and operate. I also want to have the options to send sims to my restaurants to socialize, grab a bite, and interact with those surroundings. As well as the option to "buy restaurant" or "own restaurant" but with a new system that was specifically designed for restaurants only.

    And I know this is totally off topic of my post about the speculation of restaurants being the next game pack, but I would love if all future game packs were themed to venues. Say for example... game packs themed to bowling alleys, casinos, cinemas, beauty salons, cemeteries and grocery stores. I really think game packs would be more popular amongst the fans and would add tons more game play interactions, as well as vibrant and enhanced environments. Now all we need is World Packs for $4.99 USD that gave us new vibrant empty worlds.

    Well I like your ideas, but I am afraid that I would just let the NPC's run the restaurants. I am too lazy to try and own one. I was never any good at any of the business stuff. I like things such as the spa game pack where all I have to do is take my sims there.

    I'm trying to be as realistic as possible about this, cause this is something I really, really, really miss from The Sims 2 (that one from The Sims 3 Store was a huge disappointment to me). I think there will be restaurants and I think there will be some level of costumization. Now as for running one, or even expending the culinary career, I fear that's a stretch. It would be great, but I think there are some limitations when it comes to Game Packs that makes this hard to happen.

    I expect a new lot type (Restaurant), with NPC chef and NPC waiter. Maybe a host/hostess? I expect new recipes as well. Maybe you could order food that has an impact on emotions, I don't know. Whatever comes beyond that will be very welcome from me =)

    What I would really really like to see though is more interactions among sims sitting at the same table. Again, remember those from The Sims 2? From proposing to starting food fights, I miss those.

    Maybe the pack will be like spa day where you can't work at the spa, you get the restaurant lot and a bunch of new baking recipes and new ways to make food. Although I have no idea how this pack will turn out but hey who does not like surprises.:)

    My thought is this if we get a restaurant GP we should be able to go to the place and interact and actually follow are sims around like you can with the clubs and spa work etc.

    I hope for the following things if this is true:
    - Own a restaurant
    - Hire employees that you can assign different tasks to
    - Work there as an employee instead with tasks to do like GTW (doubt this but it would be really cool)
    - New recipes for cooking, gourmet and baking
    - double wide ranges
    - counter stove tops
    - wall ovens
    - more appliances in general (fridges, trash compacter, dishwasher etc)
    - I hope they function more like TS2...
    - they get seated together (if my group sits at different tables... I'm out. I'll probably never visit it as a customer again. Just as a worker/ owner)
    - they can order food and drinks at the same time (maybe the order can me a pop up window instead of a wheel click thingy... you know what I mean... )

    I just thought of something Pizza Delivery you could actually deliver food and Pizza to Sims around your neighbor hood like how you can ask for things via the cell phone.

    Well, I am a bit different from many of you. I am terrible at retail, so I hope that we also have the option to just go to the restaurant just as we did in Sims 2. I am using the store mod (featured in the weekly mods section) now so that my Sims can just go and grocery shop. Running businesses just doesn't work for me. I am actually enjoying the little cafes we have now. I just wish we could have more than one server! Being able to have two or more would make things a lot more efficient.

    I'm terrible at retail too! I used to be so good at it in The Sims 2, I wonder what happened to me hehe

    And yes, those caf├ęs get CROWDED, it's a bummer.
