    Very creative restaurants.

    I love these kinds of resutaunts. I’ve been wanting to go to the Ninja one for a while (I live in NY), but it’s so expensive (and I’m a poor college student)!

    Also, in High School I came up with the idea for a prison themed resturant (even made a logo and menu haha), Too bad it already exists.

    Great post!
