                                   FORM 12B-25
                            Form 10-Q - June 27, 2004

Part IV, Item 3

The registrant expects that its interest in Chicago - The Grill on the Alley LLC
will be revised to effectively treat that entity as a wholly-owned entity due to
mandatory  distributions  to  investors  in Chicago - The Grill on the Alley LLC
which  were  guaranteed  by the registrant. As a result the minority interest in
loss  of subsidiaries relating to Chicago - The Grill on the Alley LLC reflected
in  prior  year  financial statements will not be recorded in the current period
and  reports  for 2003 periods will be restated to effectively reflect Chicago -
The  Grill  on  the  Alley LLC as a wholly-owned entity consistent with the 2004

Because  the  registrant  has  undertaken  a  review  of  other  entities  with
co-investors  and  has  not  yet completed that review, the registrant cannot at
this  time reasonably estimate the results of operations for the current period.
