@Busmover50 Your Italian and Asian food/restaurants are lovely! They are so creative and interesting... and both would be lovely atmosphere's to dine in!
@SheriGR Thanks! I appreciate the comments. I wish they made the Asian dining sets compatible with dine out dlc. But the restaurant requirements doesn't recognize them as dining spots.
That's something I believe programers neglected to address, which they should've!
It's still a good game regardless.

@Busmover50 I agree... I enjoy the Dine Out pack and making/running restaurants! Interesting... I never noticed that. I know they have some Asian dishes that you can choose to be served/on the menu when you make a restaurant, but it's been a while since I made a new restaurant. I'm not sure I am interpreting your meaning correctly - when you say that the game's not compatible with Asian dining sets, what do you mean by that? Is it something that came with the Snowy Escape pack (such as the low table(s)?
@SheriGR What I mean is if you put those Asian dining sets down and then go there to eat, clicking on the table won't bring up the request table option so your sim can be seated at the table. So you don't have the options you do with a regular dining tables in the restaurant.
@Busmover50 That's unfortunate. I just did an experiment, and I removed all of the dining tables and dining chairs for one of my restaurants until it registered as "0" in the seating requirement. Then I added an Asian style dining tables (low table) - which comes by default with seating for four (see first screenshot). The game did not acknowledge these four places to sit and dine as seating for the restaurant!
It looks like it's because you don't use chairs for low tables. I say this because I then tried to add s different dining table and as soon as I added a couple of dining chairs to the table the restaurant saw those as seating. However, if I placed two more dining chairs near the table but not snapped into place at the table, the game did not see those as seating for the restaurant:
I wonder if that is an oversight. If you want, you could post a thread mentioning this fact, or even see if it is accepted as a bug report? You're welcome to use the screenshots I took.
@SheriGR Thanks for checking that out. I'll do that. It would be nice if they could fix that so we could have an authentic Asian restaurant using the correct seating sets.
I was going to report that bug until I saw all the stuff they want to know. It's to much for me to want to tackle. Sorry.
@Busmover50 I can put it up, that's fine. There is a good chance it will be moved to general information as feedback/a suggestion, but either way it will be up.
The interior of my previous version of, The hare & Hedgehog, was flawed. I found this out when I went there for a date and the date wanted to carry on a four romantic relationship with the neighboring tables.
I quickly cancel that date and went in for a redesign.
It now has semi-private dining to help block unwanted conversations.
There's also a bar and wedding room upstairs. And let's not forget the make out bush along the side of the building. There's proper signage out to detour unwanted peepers.
It has a custom menu, all of the experimental dishes with a mix of regular foods too.
I made custom uniforms with hats and masks.
I like my serving staff in hats cause it's easy to pick them out and it gives the place a theme.
All in all it's quite the transformation from the dinky lil' cafe that once sat there.
