Hello LearnEnglish Team,
Carlos: So, Sarah ... Seeing as I’ve got my own restaurant now, I was wondering – shall we give it another go?
Does he mean that they went to his restaurant before and he wants them to go there again? If that is correct, why does he say (Hello, everyone! I’ve got some big news)?

Hello seham fadL,

No, the meaning is rather different. The meaning of

'Seeing as I’ve got my own restaurant now, I was wondering – shall we give it another go?'

is something like

'Now that I have my own restaurant, shall we try again?'

Hello Peter M,
Thanks for your reply. But I don't understand, if it means (shall we try again) it's about (again) ..
it is supposed to be the first time to go to his restaurant. Please explain again.

Hello sham fadL,

The 'again' here does not refer to the restaurant, but to his relationship with Sarah. You can see this because she says 'I’ve missed being with you'. They were together before, and now they're going to 'give it another go'.
