Family Affair (Posted on 2020-07-20) Difficulty: 2 of 5
AFFAIR is the second word in a common two-word phrase where the first word is "family". Five other words that can fill the blank in "Family _____" are DOCTOR, FRIEND, JEWELS, LAWYER and SECRET.

Place these six words, capitalized above, into the grid below, one per row, keeping the five letters already filled in in place, such that one of the columns spells out a word, top to bottom, that is a clue to a ten-letter word that also can follow "family" in a common phrase.


What is the ten-letter word thus clued?

From the 2020 Mensa 365 Brain Puzzlers for 2020 calendar, puzzle for July 3, by Fraser Simpson, Workman Publishing, New York, NY.

Satisfying both the Cs and the E fixes JEWELS and AFFAIR. Then the two remaining Rs and the two Cs present but 4 grids of which one spells "eatery". So it's a family restaurant.
