Net Income (Loss) Per Common Share  
Basic net income (loss) per common share is based upon the weighted-average common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net income (loss) per common share reflects the potential dilution that would occur if common stock equivalent securities or other contracts to issue common stock were exercised or converted into common stock.
Fair value measurements
The carrying amount of the Company’s accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued expenses approximate fair value because of the short term nature of the financial instruments. The carrying value of the long term debt approximates fair value since the terms of the loan have been recently negotiated.
Nature of business:  
The Company is a hospitality company that develops and operates upscale, high-energy restaurants and lounges and provides turn-key food and beverage ("F&B") services for hospitality venues including hotels, casinos and other high-end locations in the United States and England. We opened our first restaurant in January 2004 in New York City and as of November 16, 2015, we owned and operated (under lease agreements) 12 and managed (under management agreements) 15 restaurants and lounges globally, including 10 STKs in major metropolitan cities in the United States and Europe (of which 7 are owned and 3 managed). In addition, we provided food and beverage services in five hotels and casinos, one of which is under a lease agreement and four of which are under separate management agreements.  We generate management and incentive fee revenue from those restaurants and lounges that we manage on behalf of our F&B hospitality clients.
Unaudited interim financial information:
The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) for interim financial information. Accordingly, they do not include all the information and disclosures required by GAAP for complete financial statements. Operating results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2015 or for any other interim period or other future year. In the opinion of management, the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, considered necessary for a fair presentation. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2014 included in the Company’s Annual Report filed on Form 10-K/A for the year ended December 31, 2014 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on April 1, 2015.
