Tachibana is an heir to a huge and successful corporation. He can speak five languages, play musical instruments, and has even passed the bar exam, so naturally he's now... running a bakery?! At the Antique Bakery, Ono, known as the ‘Gay of demonic charm' is serves as the head patissier; ex-boxing pro Eiji works as Ono's apprentice; and Tachibana's bumbling henchman and shadow, Chikage, helps out to the best of his rather limited abilities. As a carefree ladies man, Tachibana is always ready to turn on the charm if it means getting a sale, though aside from his love of women, no one really knows why the grandson of a successful businessman would suddenly decide to open a bakery. Could a traumatic event in Tachibana's past have anything to do with why he set up shop?

Not Love But Delicious Foods Make Me So Happy

F-mi Y-naga is a mangaka whose life revolves around three things: work, sleep… and food! One day, the food-loving F-mi gets an assignment to introduce people to fine dining around the city and – with various friends in tow – she commences a gastronomic tour of Tokyo restaurants. From plates of Italian seafood salad with her room-mate S-Hara and rich French cuisine with fellow foodie, O-ta, to Sushi with her gay friend A-Dou and all you can eat Chinese dim-sum with her secret crush, F-mi is intent on eating her way around the world one dish at a time.

Anyone who loves food and Fumi Yoshinaga's work should pick both of these series up. Both Antique Bakery and Not Love but Delicious Foods Make Me Happy focus on eating establishments and human interaction. While Not Love is geared more towards the food than Antique if you enjoy the subtle humour and salivating nosh on each page, then try out both of these.

Ristorante Paradiso

Ristorante Paradiso

Located on a small street near the center of Rome, the Casetta dell'orso is a small yet popular restaurant staffed by a group of older, bespectacled gentlemen. Nicoletta is a twenty-one-year-old woman who has just arrived in Rome to meet with her estranged mother's husband, who owns the restaurant. She intends to inform him that not only was his wife married once before, but also that she is her daughter - a secret her mother desperately wants kept. When she arrives at the restaurant Nicoletta becomes enamoured with Claudio, one of the waiters, and begins to spend more time there. Despite the age gap, Nicoletta finds her feelings towards Claudio growing; and after making a promise to keep her mother's secret, Nicoletta begins working at the restaurant as an apprentice chef. Now she is trying her hardest to become a good cook, but can Nicoletta overcome the difference in age and win the quiet Claudio's heart?

Both of these manga series focus on attractive staff in an eating establishment and the interaction between the characters. While Antique Bakery is more homoerotic, and Ristorante more focused on elder gentlemen, both have a similar vibe to them with romantic overtones and a more mature style.
