Because in a recession, one must be picky. How’s this going down, you ask?
Building his new Barista with no electrical outlets in the dining room and designing the floor with tiny little tables set at a height too low for working on your laptop.

Refuse to serve anything with cilantro, lemongrass, mango or bacon. Say this is because of an obscure religious prohibition (snake-handler, Christian Scientist, Church of Scientology), and make your announcement via Yelp.
Alternately, don’t use the words “organic,” “local,” “sustainable,” “green” or “farm-to-table” anywhere on your menu. This will allow you to slip completely below the radar of the local foodistas and operate your business in relative peace.
