thanks for replying at my post
can i ask you whats really that dissapointing about the appetizers?couse i am really curious about it..
With respect to your appetizers, again too "exotic" for many. I would eat the goat cheese salad and my dh would have the salad but that would be it. I think it is great to be different but same comments as the main dishes, you need to have your own spin on some of the old favourites. For example, if someone just doesn't want the exotic style appetizers, how about the old stand by Caesar Salad ( I know that is very regular but lots of people like it) but with real bacon bits and a great dressing? Perhaps a hot appetizer that doesn't involve fish? There are lots of great soups to have as well that doesn't involve fish. How about a corn chowder or another type of soup. Your sister restaurant, Yemanja I die for their potatoe and chive soup!!
My point is that you need to balance out the exotic with some not so exotic so your appeal will be broader. With your current menu, imo, you will limit yourself with the type of customers that will come to your restaurant.
Anyway, hope my suggestions/comments help.
