What is a "fun" restaurant?

Spiritchaser | Nov 8, 2007 05:58 AM

I never quite understand what people mean when they ask for recommendations and want a fun restaurant. Visions of 'Big Bob's Whoppie Emporium and Soda Fountain - Home of All You Can Eat Ice Cream on your Birthday' always come to mind.

I have never been to a truly "fun" restaurant that is good/fine dining. I've been to plenty of good/fine dining where the staff has been wonderful and the food great which made for a good evening but I would never put it in the fun category.

So what do others think? Are the two terms mutually exclusive?
