Turning our Backyard into the #1 Restaurant in Los Angeles!! (Rated 5-Stars on Google)

  • Published on Apr 5, 2018
  • Yes Table ended up reaching 11,500 5 star reviews on google maps after the episode went live on the channel. google took it down after 3 months for not being a “real restaurant” 😂
    We thought it'd be a good idea to turn our backyard in a restaurant... and invite strangers to come eat. Our goal was to end up as the #1 rated restaurant in the city of Venice, California... and give people one of the best dining experiences they've ever had!
