When I choose to dine out, the restaurant that I select must serve one of these wines:
 
Dom Pérignon Champagne

B&G Château Magnol

 B&G Château Barrail-Laussac

For those who don't know what I'm talking about here are the definitions:
 
 
Raconteur (a person who excels in telling anecdotes)  and Bon vivant (a person having cultivated, refined, and sociable tastes especially with respect to food and drink).

Why?Town, you made a very good point as to owner customer relationships. Unfortunately in being a regular viewer of the Food Network, the sort of contact you referenced is encouraged in many of their shows, the exception being the Diners Drive-Ins and Dives show that spotlights the sort of restaurant owners that fit the bill Raconteur and Bon vivant.

There were two who fit the bill, but unfortunately, as far as I know, their sons have taken the establishment over it's not quite the same, and also unfortunately it's not downtown, but on the North Side ... the Golden Dawn. And it's also a great restaurant.

How much of a fixture does a customer have to be to be able to answer this question?  I go out to eat regularly but haven't met most owners and those I have it's little more than a "How's everything", "Just fine" to "Great" (usually)  and off they go.

this is a tough question, over the past 5 years and in some cases more I have gotten to know each of them very well. All of them care about downtown and the area and are very passionate about their businesses.
