Out of business and sadly missed

Larry | Oct 1, 199910:33 PM     3

It seems to be all too common that the restaurants that the foodies love the most go out of business, while the restaurants that serve "bad" food continue to flourish, open new locations, and pack people in at all hours. Does anybody have an explaination for this? If you want examples, Versailles, Johnnies Pastrami, and La Serranata have been bashed here regularly, I happen to love all three, and they are all doing a land-office business. Maybe one thing has nothing to do with the other but if that is the case, are the foodies out of touch with what the majority of people want to eat or is it like Jazz music? If a performer becomes too popular, he is accused of being a sell-out and his music is not considered Jazz anymore. Just an observation. Please enlighten me if you want, I would appreciate it.
