George’s on the Waterfront

George stood in the kitchen doorway and looked out at his empty dining room.  Once a thriving business, now with no customers, George didn’t think he could keep the landmark open.  Fifty years ago, the waterfront was in an economic boom and people were lined up waiting to dine daily.

George turned in anticipation when he saw a tall man dressed in a black tee-shirt and jeans enter the diner.  George picked up a menu and approached the customer.

“Welcome to George’s on the Waterfront,” said George.

“George, I am Chef Robert Irvine and I’m here to save your restaurant.”
