Synonyms of "Restaurant" and their differences

A: "Neighbourhood" is a specific location.
"Nearby" is not a specific location.

"There are no restaurants in this neighbourhood" is talking about a specific location.
So it's the same idea as saying things like
"There are no hotels in this city."
Or
"There are no restaurants on this island."

There are no restaurants nearby is NOT talking about a specific location

For example:
"There is a restaurant nearby. It will take only two minutes to arrive there. "

Or

"There are no restaurants nearby. The nearest restaurants is 30 minutes from here."

I hope that helps 😄

I wonder why people call me that way, because I’m 25-year-old and not middle age woman🙄
Please tell me the reason!
A: "Ma'am" and "madam" aren't specifically for middle-aged women. It's common to refer to any adult women with these terms, and even sometimes teenagers. In general, they're just polite terms. Don't take it as an insult if they call you "madam". It's only an insult when said with an extremely sarcastic tone in an informal situation. These terms are always used when referring to female customers or such in a formal situation if they don't know your name. Its male equivalent is "sir".
