All restaurant stories are above all else, people stories, the people who own and staff these businesses, and the patrons who frequent them.

Because if you are not these things, you will never venture inside the doors of a new establishment, and at one time or another every restaurant had a beginning, and every patron had to be teased or enticed to enter. The first patrons are the modern culinary equivalent of the early nomads. The restaurant patrons who like what they find and tend to limit themselves going forward to their new habitat, are the modern agriculturalists who settle an area and find comfort in what they know. New restaurants depend on the curiosity of the nomads to get started, and entrenched restaurants rely on human habit to stay in business.
Dining out at a new restaurant, at least new to them, can say a lot about folks’ relationship with risk.
