New restaurant opening In Lewes. I have visited the one in Bristol. Great food, great atmosphere and great service. I am hoping they can bring the same to the much needed Lewes.
Had a look through the window and the interior looks great! I know I will be done there once they open!

Just how exciting is it ? There is only so many ways to cook pasta and pizza !! Same with Thai food, available everywhere ! Becomes commonplace.

Hardly a genuine post, is it? I truly despise low-rent social media advertorial spin.

You know you will be 'done' there when it opens, do you? What will you have 'done' to you?

It's pathetic and badly written too - what does the phrase "much needed Lewes" mean? It sounds as if Lewes is needed rather than Aqua. We're not exactly short of decent Italian restaurants. These crappy attempts to use social media as a marketing tool look as if they've been delegated to a 14-year-old doing work experience.

I wonder if 'Charlie' of the Your town post and 'JustAKid' are related by any chance? Unpaid interns for a marketing company posting obvious little items about their client? It could backfire, you know. People don't like being treated like idiots.

@ veggie Dave, just took a look and yea agreed. I wouldn't rush there, since it has just a tiny handful of non-meat meals, and typically they are dairy-laden. Perhaps they aren't bothered about the 5-10% vegan/vegetarian minority, but I still think its a bit unfair also on those that might just not want to eat meat on that occasion and have the option.

The veggie/vegan main options are two types of risotto or a warm salad! Oh and no roast option on a Sunday either, what a load of unimaginative rubbish

I believe that what these firms do is get the young intern to do the posting because they're social networking savvy. Writing style very similar to the recent OP praising the actual hotel.

Two of the sentences don't make sense and the use of anaphora and exclamation points removes any semblance of sincerity and genuineness.

So they have managed to create an online argument between you about their restaurant but you all think you are the clever ones because you know the rules of grammar. I am not a clever person but if you know anything about Cialdini you might have an inkling to what's going on.
Yes, you are using your spare time to promote a restaurant you don't even want to visit. Just what kind of geniuses are you?

@VeggieDave - the bumph that came through my door stated they would be doing a Sunday roast. It also said it was an independent family restaurant. Perhaps this means it's a franchise.

They're a small independent chain. The menu looked much better that the big chain Italians in town but I'll reserve judgement until I've tasted the food. Looks like they'll be open for breakfast too. They're giving away free food this week. I wish them well.

If Aqua were remotely Italian, they would spell their name correctly ... Acqua.

Nearly all Italian restaurants in Lewes are corporate entities enjoying their tax breaks and serving in my opinion non Italian mush. At least La Famiglia tries, even though they are wary as a business of showcasing the full monty of a truly regional Italian cuisine (which they are by the way totally capable of achieving). I've no truck with pastiche; I don't think there is a single restaurant in Italy called Aqua let alone one serving a 'Sunday roast'. What do these chancers take us for? Idiots obviously given the embarassingly crass market
ploy that originally opened this thread.

Why another Italian restaurant? Why couldn't someone open something much more interesting? A Moroccan restaurant, for example, would create a lot more interest and curiosity. Italian food is so dull and boring.
We already have Italian restaurants anyway.
Yawn.

Miserable, Italian food isn't boring -it's an amazing varied delight. What corporate ventures, as in so many other crannies of our lives, have done is commodify it and then destroy its value, all character stripped away in pursuit of profit margins. It is overblown rents and consequent tax breaks that govern the mediocre food on offer in Lewes nowadays.

Dear Gourmet,
I take your point about Italian food. I should have been more specific. What I meant was Italian food offered on the menus of these types of restaurants is dull and boring. Of course in Italy itself the traditional non-tourist food they eat sure is delicious. But I don't feel that this is what we get a taste of in these kinds of restaurants. I look at Italian menus in these type of chain restaurants and just feel bored and uninspired.
