Business and basis of presentation
Business and basis of presentation: 
Nature of business:  
The Company is a global hospitality company that develops, owns 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 globally. We opened our first restaurant in January 2004 in New York City and as of November 14, 2016, we owned and operated (under lease agreements) 12 and managed (under management agreements) 20 restaurants and lounges globally, including 13 STKs in major metropolitan cities in the United States, Canada and Europe (of which eight are owned and five managed). In addition, we provide F&B services in seven hotels and casinos, one of which is under a lease agreement and six 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.

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. At September 30, 2016, there are 3,044,012 securities that can potentially dilute basic EPS in the future (including stock issuable under contingent stock agreements). These securities were not included in the computation of diluted EPS because they would have had an antidilutive effect on EPS for the periods presented.
Fair value measurements
The carrying amounts of cash, receivables, accounts payable and accrued expenses approximate fair value due to the immediate or short-term maturity of these financial instruments. The carrying value of the long term debt approximates its fair value since the components of long term debt have been recently negotiated.
Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform to current year presentation in the consolidated financial statements. 
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, 2016 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2016 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, 2015 included in the Company’s Annual Report filed on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on March 30, 2016.
