We need your help to turn our dream into a reality. My name is Samuel Tunde Dare-Olaleye, and I'm reaching out to you today with a heartfelt plea for support as we embark on a journey to establish Item7 Fine Dining & Lounge in Portsmouth.

This venture is more than just a business opportunity for me; it's a passion project born out of a deep love for African cuisine and culture. Growing up in Nigeria, I was surrounded by the rich aromas and flavors of traditional dishes, and I've always dreamed of sharing that experience with others. Item7 Fine Dining & Lounge aims to be a beacon of culinary excellence, offering a unique fusion of upscale dining and laid-back lounge vibes. Our menu celebrates the vibrant flavors and cultural heritage of African and Nigerian cuisine, showcasing the diversity and complexity of our culinary traditions.

But we need your help to make this vision a reality. Securing a commercial space, renovating it to our specifications, and furnishing it to create the perfect ambiance requires a significant investment. That's why we're turning to you, our community, for support.By contributing to our GoFundMe campaign, you'll not only be helping us launch a business but also supporting a small, minority-owned enterprise striving to make a positive impact in our community. Your generosity will enable us to create jobs, support local suppliers, and contribute to the vibrant cultural tapestry of Portsmouth.

Our vision for Item7 Fine Dining & Lounge extends beyond just serving delicious food and drinks. We want to create a space where people from all walks of life can come together to enjoy great cuisine, lively music, and memorable experiences. Whether you're a college student looking for a new hangout spot, a young family craving a night out, or a tourist eager to explore the flavors of Africa, there will be something for everyone at Item7.
