Dazzling Through Decades

Thierry-Dazzling.jpgInspired by Madison Park Cafe's impending changeover and the 35th anniversary of Kirkland gyro shop George's, Seattle Met critic Kathryn Robinson ruminates on Seattle restaurants with staying power: "The single most dazzling thing a restaurateur can do is the daily work of stewarding a business so esteemed by its customers, it measures its life not in years—but decades...Ask any longtime owner—the Canlises, Tom Douglas of the Dahlia Lounge (and others), Jackie Roberts of the Pink Door, Carmine Smeraldo of Il Terrazzo Carmine, Thierry Rautureau of Rover’s, and more—and they’ll tell you how grueling it is. And how great." [Seattle Met]
