After successfully opening Tom Tom with Lisa Vanderpump and Ken Todd in 2018, Tom Schwartz and Tom Sandoval are finally teaming up on another restaurant. This time, however, it's without the Vanderpump Rules boss. While the pals have already found a location and were enthusiastically planning decor details in the Bravo Insider video above, there was one major item on their to-do list that they weren't so excited about: telling Lisa and Ken.

How to Watch

Watch Vanderpump Rules on Bravo Tuesdays at 8/7c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo app.  

"As amazing as it is to see Ken and Lisa, I'm also slightly nervous," Sandoval said in an interview. "Because I don't know if they know we're opening a new place or not." However, once they broke the news, they received a positive response from the couple. 

"I want you to know that we support what you're doing," Lisa said. Ken added, "We admire you for that because it's not easy."

During their meeting, Sandoval revealed the theme for the future business: "James Turrell, light artist, went over to his grandma's house and took some acid...It's really cool."

Although Schwartz explained they were "still working on the name," Sandoval felt strongly about one name in particular. However, Katie Maloney-Schwartz wasn't exactly a fan of his choice, quipping, "Ugh. I lost my boner."
