Two months ago I met a chef and worked with him on a couple "pop-ups." this chef knew of a bar/cafe owner that wanted to serve food in his bar area with a bistro theme. i created a menu and with the other chef bought all the food and executed a "soft-opening." the owner was out of town and upon his return was upset to learn that a few of his employees were less than happy with the situation in the kitchen and the intensity during service. the owner has decided to not move forward. however it is my menu. my food is very much of my creation and it would be seriously hard for another person to execute the menu let alone create that menu, He has not paid me compensation and i wanna know if there's something legally i can do? can i sue and ask that my imagines be removed from the restaurants social media., menu be stopped, and compensation?
This is a breach of contract issue and the answer to your questions depends heavily on what the terms of your contract are. Speaking generally, though, you should be able to seek some kind of compensation from the restaurant.
