Then you eat there and the Food.."BLOWS." This is the beginning of the… Continue

Good Morning, I am a "retired" chef and restaurant owner currently running a consulting business yet focusing on some very intriguing web projects that may interest you in the near future...I will keep you posted.
Where exactly is your restaurant? There was a small place in Cooperstown NY called DiMaggio's that was run by a DiMaggio family, any relation?

Hey Joe....First of all...Pleased to meet the son of the MAN!! I would like to personally invite you to my!! Its a place where you can advertise your business, promote your special events & invite your customers there to blog about food related events. You customers will also be able to exchange recipes, join groups and interact with other food customers from around the world!! It's a different concept, but I think that's the draw. I am very excited about the future of this site. My company (Goins Enterprises) is currently launching a national campaign to promote this website. We feel that as we are promoting nationally, our members should promote to their own customers. I think that this site will give "Ellen Giminski" of Denver, the opportunity to experience your establishment & browse your menu and pictures. This will entice Mrs. Giminski to visit your establishment on her next trip to Florida.

We have also designated a place on the Home Page where we will doing "Close Ups" on Restaurants, Chefs & Special Events. Please stop by and take a look. Please contact me with any comments or constructive criticisms.
