The USS Quasar now has a restaurant in what used to be observation Lounge 2. It was going to be named Casa Cassandra, but the Captain vetoed that name and any other bearing her name or any of her relatives.

It also cannot be named after liquor and it should be reflective of a classy restaurant.

Post your ideas. Post your remarks about other people's suggestions (but no flaming).

The chef is Crewman Emeril LaGasse.

Well, for a restaurant on a starship, a space theme would not be out of the question so how about Bella Luna? Or Massalina? (it's the name of an asteroid) Harmonia and Calliope (or Kalliope) are two of the muses and they're also names of asteroids, plus I think there's a star cluster named fro the nine muses.

Selene's? Selene's Retreat? Selene's Den? Selene's Hideaway? You get the idea but I'm not thinking of the right second word. Selene's Palace is a bit too much.

BTW, there's also an asteroid named "McDonalda" in case you want to be ironic. OK, so you don't. I still found it funny.

Or, for a totally different tact, you could call it Ella's. Ella Brennan believed Emeril had talent and hired him to run her restaurant, The Commander's Palace, in New Orleans. From there and with her connections, he created his reputation. You could say the chef named it after a relative or mentor.

Or Nigella's, after British food hottie, Nigella Lawson. I love her because she'll take the easy way so she can spend time with her family and friends, while still serving great food. She also has a very sensual approach to food, which, combined with her good looks, is why her male viewership is so high.

Roxanne's? Rosalinda's? Isadora's? (Isadora Duncan was a famous dancer)

Buona Vita? La Bonne Vie Maison?

That's all I can think of at the moment. Bed is calling.

I like the Commander's Palace. However, I think it is too close to the Captain's proscriptions. She does not want the restaurant to reflect her in any way...Too Bad, another name shot down in the prime of its life... Wink

OK, let's nip this one in the bud before it gets carried away.

I never suggested the Commander's Palace because when I read the instructions for the "contest" I was actually able to comprehend them and I can follow instructions. I only mentioned it in passing to explain why "Ella's" or some such would be an appropriate name and a tip of the hat the the real Emeril's history. The Commander's Palace is a double violation of the instructions for suggestions so it is not -- and was never intended to be -- a valid suggestion.

Maybe you need to update your sig file or just have some caffeine before reading postings.

My thoughts on the name:

"The Nucleus"

"Luminosity"

Properties of quasars.
