Interesting article on rich diner's habits.

This totally makes sense.
Rich people tend to go to places they know and are familiar with.

  1. Don't we all tend to go to places we know and are familiar with?

      The article is saying not so rich ones are the ones who take risks and try hard to book a table at a place like EMP and Per Se.
      maybe it's i am not so rich, i like going to a restaurant where they give you the maxium value for the money. I don't like paying $40 for a mediocre salad.

    2. Here's to the ladies that lunch ... here's to that unadventurous bunch. The dinasaures surviving the crunch.

      That is about Manhattan which has its own dining thing going. I wonder if there would be similar results in Chicago, SF or LA

        This thread discusses some of the problems with the underlying data.

      2. "Rich people tend to go to places they know and are familiar with."

        I agree with that, rich people will go back to the same places they always go to feel like they are regular VIPs and expect freebies because they are regulars.

          but don't all of us go to the same places to go because we receive good treatment?

          Sorry, this whole article just smack of "obvious cat is obvious" to me.

        2. I can dig it. I do it every evening at home except on special occasions, but I'm not rich.
