Hello to all,
I will soon be be”h opening up a new fast food restaurant in one of the large frum communities. The restaurant is going to serve a variety of sandwiches, all on baguettes including schnitzel, steak, grilled chicken, 220g burgers etc, etc.
I have been debating between two names and I’m curious to know the opinions of my fellow coffee room readers.
The names I have been contemplating are grill bar and baguette bar. I would appreciate some opinions.

They are both a little vanilla can u add something to make it stand out?July 18, 2011 6:53 pm at 6:53 pm #801503mikehall12382Member
Grill Bar…id I had 2 choose between the two..July 18, 2011 7:06 pm at 7:06 pm #801504A23Participant
Grill Bar is way too generic. Baguette Bar is a little better, but I would be concerned about people just thinking you’re confusing it with Burgers Bar.July 18, 2011 7:21 pm at 7:21 pm #801505haifagirlParticipant
Not crazy about either. How about Baguetteria?July 18, 2011 7:21 pm at 7:21 pm #801506dunnoMember
I’m voting for Baguette Bar. Sounds more upper class to meJuly 18, 2011 7:37 pm at 7:37 pm #801507
220 g burgers? Three of those and I’ll still be hungry!
Baguette bar is the better of the 2.
Speaking of which, did you hear about the S.Y. and the Ashkenazi who opened a restaurant together? It’s called Douek and Feffer.July 18, 2011 7:44 pm at 7:44 pm #801508
I think something like “The Baguettery” would be nice.July 18, 2011 7:46 pm at 7:46 pm #801509bptParticipant
For sure not baguette bar. It doesnt sound like fleshig food.
And if you are interested in a personal opinion, I think Grill King (or HotSpot) would fly with less resistance than anything with the word “bar” in it. Not sure which hechsher you will carry, but many of them will balk at putting their name on a place called a bar. (At least the ones in my immediate area.)
The real question is, how good are your fries and onion rings? And will you offer a real good garlic mayo dip?July 18, 2011 8:01 pm at 8:01 pm #801510☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
How about The Baguette Grill?July 18, 2011 8:05 pm at 8:05 pm #801511
are you serving alcohol?July 18, 2011 8:07 pm at 8:07 pm #801512wanderingchanaParticipant
Are you talking about a real French-style baguette? Or what’s called a hoagie-grinder-sub depending on where you live?July 18, 2011 8:10 pm at 8:10 pm #801513☕️coffee addictParticipant

sounds more Israeli to meJuly 18, 2011 8:19 pm at 8:19 pm #801514ronrsrMember
There is now a restaurant in Williamsburg called Trayf. Why not call yours simply Kosher?
Actually, I don’t like either name. I think you can do better.July 18, 2011 8:24 pm at 8:24 pm #801515MDGParticipant
600 kilo bear said “220 g burgers? Three of those and I’ll still be hungry!”
Unless you are really a 600 kilo bear, I think that you’d be satisfied with 1.5 pounds of meat with all the fixings.July 18, 2011 8:25 pm at 8:25 pm #801516
How about “The Grill Guy”? Puting a picture of an oversized “Grill Guy” fliping hot burgers on your adds will surly make some people hungry… and that name should go well with a fast food take out store. (if you open something fancy then you need a more classy name).July 18, 2011 8:41 pm at 8:41 pm #801517

Grill Bar may get confused with Grill Point if you are in the New York area.July 18, 2011 9:06 pm at 9:06 pm #801519brotherofursParticipant
i like deiyezooger’s idea :D.. but if i had to choose btwn the two of those i would pik baguette bar because it soundss better because they both start with ‘B’July 18, 2011 9:48 pm at 9:48 pm #801520
🙂 I don’t eat carbs on weekdays. 1.5 pounds of raw meat is about what I use to make ONE burger. One nice-sized bag of chopped meat from our local shoichet and factory = about 1.3 to 1.5 kilos = 2 hubcap sized burgers for me. Even one 220 g burger on a bun would be enough though; the empty calories of the bun would fill me up.
I’m in Eastern Europe – I know my metric measurements very well!
600 kilo bears in zoos eat over 20 lbs of meat and fish a day. They’re lousy pets.July 18, 2011 10:31 pm at 10:31 pm #801521
600 Kilo – if you lived here in Canada, you would also need to know your metric measurements. The odd thing in Canada is that the supermarket fliers still advertise their goods in pounds, so that the items sound less costly than if advertised by the kilo.July 18, 2011 10:40 pm at 10:40 pm #801522ChanieEParticipant
Baguettes were all the rage when I was in seminary many years ago, so to me, baguettes just seem milchig. If you want to include “baguette” to differentiate yourself from a standard burger joint, I second Baguette Grill.
Please let us know when and where you open!July 18, 2011 10:43 pm at 10:43 pm #801523oomisParticipant
I don’t like either name at all. Sorry. Baguette Bistro from Mewho sounds more interesting. La Belle Baguette? Baguette Bonanza?July 18, 2011 10:51 pm at 10:51 pm #801524
” The odd thing in Canada is that the supermarket fliers still advertise their goods in pounds, so that the items sound less costly than if advertised by the kilo.”
Maybe in the US they should start selling gaseline by the liter, it will be much cheaper that way.July 18, 2011 10:54 pm at 10:54 pm #801525

“sounds more Israeli to me”
lol- I was just going to say that. But the menu sounds suspiciously israeli to me also…so the name will fit right inJuly 19, 2011 11:24 am at 11:24 am #801532
i like ”grill – it” tooJuly 19, 2011 4:52 pm at 4:52 pm #801533yolkMember
no offense but the two original names arent so….. original and catchy enough to get customers
grill it- is my favorite
baguettaria, and The Baguettery also sound goodJuly 19, 2011 5:00 pm at 5:00 pm #801534giggle girlParticipant
one more vote for “Grill It!”
Another name — i think you got it! good job on your creativity!July 19, 2011 6:11 pm at 6:11 pm #801535oomisParticipant
Grill it, does not give you a sense of the type of restaurant this is supposed to be. I think “baguette” should be somewhere in the title.July 19, 2011 6:17 pm at 6:17 pm #801536adamsParticipant

I love oomis’ suggestion of “La Belle Baguette”. It sounds tres chic. Of course, French is one of Canada’s official languages.July 19, 2011 6:45 pm at 6:45 pm #801539mommamia22Participant
How about “BaGrill” ?July 19, 2011 7:23 pm at 7:23 pm #801540

I like haifagirl’s Baguetteria. It sounds fast-food-y.
Also like “BaGrill” from mommamia22, it combines the Baguette part and sounds Israeli.July 20, 2011 3:36 am at 3:36 am #801543love a yidMember
