The Buddha had taught to practice equinimity...he would not have decided to have only strangers, or only friends, or only enemies come into his restaurant. So he welcomes all equally.

: Have you been to one? I've heard that there is one in France, but in Portland, Oregon, another cuisine with "Buddha theme" was just opened up. The bar and restaurant names Terra, selling French/Asian/Japenese cuisine with the Buddha image on the ads and the big Buddha statue decorated inside the place. How do you Buddhist folks feel about this "trend"? How come I've never seen any eatery that came up with other religions' leaders "theme" like those two above? Is it appropriate for Buddha statue to be in there? Can someone please open my eyes on this?
