This building was one of the "modular" buildings featured in my AFOLcon display earlier this year, which was inspired by my all-time favourite episode of Kitchen Nightmares USA. I thought I'd showcase it here before it gets decommissioned.

...and then we kept our heads down, and we got through it together.
And we made some really exciting changes.
The menu's changed, the staff have changed.
Mate, there's one thing that hasn't changed in this establishment. And that's...you, Sabe.

I remember this episode.... just the first shot of the building was enough to remind me because I remembered that very interesting building with the porches.  Watching Hell's Kitchen right now.   :classic:

Superb! this is a nice MOC in it's own right, but the way you've presented it, and that you've based it off an episode of Kitchen Nightmares is just great. It looks accurate tot he source material. I've got to watch that episode now! nice work :thumbup:

Thanks very much for the comments, and very glad that it brought LT out of his low mood! It is a very distinctive building, and something that could easily be adapted into a set, so I couldn't help but have a go at building it.

That's hilarious. Great MOC! I remember this episode. I recall it being one my favorites too. Very true to the design. Those mini-figs are spot on to the characters they represent. I could see some of the scenes being animated using your set. Great job. Definitely not "sloppy, shortcut, five-out-of-ten frozen ways" going on here lol. Love that line by the way.
