QUOTE OF THE DAY - "A few miss it, because I think some people really enjoy dressing up and going out to eat - and I mean really dressing up, not wearing a new pair of jeans. The truth is, I don't really think that happens in California as much anymore, so for those people I think it's a little bit of a sad departure. We were one of the last bastions of hope. But there's also a lot of people who just don't want to dress up anymore." —Ron Siegel, on saying goodbye to The Dining Room at the Ritz-Carlton. [SFoodie]
