I wouldn't be surprised if Teen Mom Farrah Abraham fancied herself a mini Bethenny Frankel. Already a reality star, the self-described "momtrepreneur" has made the foray into a bevy of other fields -- from modeling to her own line of Italian pepper sauce! But that's not all. Currently getting her masters in Culinary Arts, Farrah has always wanted to open her own restaurant. She says her ultimate goal would be an Asian and Italian fusion spot.
With the final season of Teen Mom airing now, she's decided it's time to go for it by taking some time off of school to make her dream restaurant a reality. She told a local Florida newspaper that she's "focusing on location, financing, architecture, and just putting myself in the mindset." Wow. In other words, it sounds like this is so HAPPENING! So what on earth will be on Farrah's Italian-Asian fusion menu?
As it turns out, Farrah's not the first to come up with the idea of merging Far East flavors with Mediterranean zest. Another Asian-Italian fusion restaurant in New York serves up dishes like sesame rice crackers with a small bowl of eggplant caponata or teriyaki pork and beef meatballs skewered with lollipop sticks and resting on a tomato sauce with a drizzle of balsamic. Hmm, sounds strangely appetizing, right?

Although the dominating concept at the NYC spot appears to be Asian paired with downplayed Italian seasonings, I could see the reverse being true for Farrah's restaurant ... Like Italian-inspired maki filled with antipasto-type meats, risotto with a teriyaki chicken, or pizza topped with Japanese eggplant. Yum!
Yeah, I could totally see this working out. Especially in the Miami-Fort Lauderdale area where Farrah lives. She'll have to open it near some chic boutique hotels, like in SoBe or on Fort Lauderdale's hip Las Olas Boulevard. It'll be a hit there! Still, I definitely think she should track down and chat up Bethenny Frankel at some point. A few tips from the Foodie Queen of Branding, and she'll be all set to soar!
What do you think about Farrah's restaurant concept -- yum or yuck?
