I love classic restaurants and eat like it's 1963. My first requirement is a moving visual environment. I will sacrifice quality for aesthetics. When I see dishes like Chicken a la King on a menu or hear that a waiter has been serving longer than I've been alive, I know where to spend my dining dollar.
