Theme restaurants are a tricky affair. Base your eatery on a popular movie or television show, and you run the risk of becoming dated in rather short order. There are some you could get away with, movies like Star Wars and shows like Star Trek have sticking power and aren’t going away any time soon (there’s a coffee house in Seattle that started out with a Firefly specific theme, but gradually expanded to incorporate a wider, general sci-fi vibe). Another on this list is Doctor Who. With 50 years in the bag, it shows no signs of slowing down, and one New York restaurant called The Pandorica took this idea and ran with it.
Situated in Beacon, New York, north of New York City, The Pandorica not only features food items (including “faux fish fingers”) inspired by the Time Lord and his five plus decades of adventures, but they’ve also incorporated various elements from the series into their décor and design, and even the appearance of the menus themselves.
