Not exactly restaurant specific, but this article will give you general knowledge about business costs involved into starting a new business. Sorry if you already know those things, i just thought it can be useful anyways.
Perhaps a little more information would help. How big is the restaurant? What capacity will you feed? What type of menu? Will there be any frying? Or ovens? Will you need a dish washing machine? How much refrigeration will you need? etc. etc.
Depending on size, it can range anywhere from $150K-500K. I`ve helped fund a few restaurants in the southern california area and they range closer to $200K-300k. Location will be a big factor in the overall price. If you need help in the funding department let me know.
