"Since hiring a highly praised young Head Chef a few years ago, Londoste has built a reputation of serving deliciously modern foods infused with wonderful flavors."

Downtown's finest dining establishment, Londoste, has received a much needed makeover, with the once-young Head Chef who took over more than a decade ago deciding the place's d?cor no longer matched the restaurant's upscale tastes. In a way, Londoste has freshened up by looking backwards. The 'H' shaped floor plan remains, but the dining spaces are now separated by a larger two-story entrance and waiting area. The west wing features fine dining, but please limit your party to 6 or fewer. Reservations must be made in advance, and the waitlist can be long during the holiday season. The east wing includes the bar, casual dining, bathrooms, and a high-stakes poker table. Please remember that Londoste maintains a strict dress code.

Pretentious description aside, nothing too complicated about this makeover. I've always thought that Londoste had a pretty good base as an upscale restaurant, though the interior left a lot to be desired. I pulled this renovation off pretty quickly - small edits to the shape of the building, an improved floorplan (the original entrance was too small and a routing nightmare), nice new hardwood floor, some Tudor style improvements, and some fittingly expensive furnishings.

Lot has been playtested and I found no issues. As always, if you find any please let me know. I hope you enjoy playing it!
