- Can I see a menu?

- What for?

- Because the food's very important to me.

It's kind of hard to

get a sense of the space

without understanding the flavor profile.

- I'll go grab one.

Here you go.

- Something wrong, Miss Broche?

- No, I see you have a

tartar, Caprese salad.


These are your recipes?

- That's right.

- What sets your menu apart?

- Apart from what?

- No offense, but this is

the most ubiquitous menu

I've ever seen.

- Who do you think you are?

You realize we're the clients, right?

- What sets it apart, Miss Broche,

is that I'm the one making it.

- Okay.

What does that mean to people?

- [Peter] Did you come to insult us

or design the restaurant?

- No offense, but this is

not what inspires people.

I was hired because I have bold ideas

that go beyond what the

color of the sconces are.

So if you want this place to look like

every other restaurant in

America, then hire someone else.

But, if you want this place to have soul,

let me help you find it.

- How many restaurants have

you designed in San Francisco?

- This is my first one.

- Okay, I think we're done here.

Thank you for coming.

- Wait a minute, Peter, I want

to hear what she has to say.

- Can I talk to you a moment privately?

- One minute.

- We have to get rid of her.

- Why, I like her.

- Are you insane?

She has no idea what she's doing.

- And, I want to see where that takes us.

- I can't believe you're

even entertaining the idea

of letting her--

- Look what choice do we have?

We're over budget, we're over time.

I mean you want to wait

another six months?

I say we just give her a shot.

- Oh really, Mark Mathison

wants to give her a shot?

- Yes.

- You're so predictable.

- Look, who else is gonna do it?

- It can't be that hard.

- Oh give me a break.
