That said: chef != restauranteur. Knowing how to cook is difficult, and managing a business is even more, and these two roles are not related. I believe very few people in the world can be a very good chef AND a very good restauranteur based on talent alone and - sorry to say - 8 years of kitchen experience only.

So if you wanna run your own restaurant, while you might be already qualified to cook, in your shoes I would invest in some restaurant management course. Or consider an experienced partner to focus on business while you focus on kitchen.

Good luck!
