In the 1980's when the Mountain Jack's restaurant chain was formed, the overarching company also had a chain of upscale seafood restaurants, which they built and promoted at the same time. These restaurants had a rooftop 'lighthouse'. In the 90's, they were converted to Mountain Jack's. What was the original name of this restaurant chain? Attached is a link to a google streetview of one (closed) in Michigan.

I have a chance to name a new sandwich at a favorite lunch spot. I have a chance to name a new sandwich at a favorite lunch spot. I gave the owner the idea making some tweaks on an existing sandwich. He liked the idea and said it will be on the menu next week. Then he said I had to name it. The new sandwich will be a Carolina style pulled chicken, marinated in Buffalo wing sauce with Gorgonzola cheese. All stuffed in a hallowed out sub roll to make a "handwich". I've been racking my brain for a name that might incorporate a Buffalo/Carolina connection, but Buffalina or Carofalo are the lazy way out. Also, using my nickname "Eman" in the name of the sandwich would not bother me. So bombard me with your ideas.

How does a real restaurant kitchen work?
