As the narrative frame explains, there is a restaurant at the Theophoric Institute, both for visitors and residents. It's on the top floor and the view from the Castle out over the bay of Surakosai is impressive. Not only that, the roof of the round "castle" turret serves as an outdoor dining area in good weather. The original concessionaires who ran the place had a menu of skewered meats, grilled fish, grains, and stews, but in the last year it has changed hands and now features more varied fare. The restaurant is named "Sharbel's," after a famous theophore of the previous century who used to conduct much of his business in a restaurant. His portrait is on the wall, along with those of other theophoric and nouetic notables.
