Better than ever

Longevity says it all with metro restaurants that have passed the 25-year mark and continue to thrive.


Food and Drink Features

Carol Smaglinski
Metro restaurants that have managed to stay around long enough to clink a glass of Champagne for their silver anniversaries are few and far between. New ones pop up with lofty ideas on the lookout for hungry diners, but many of those restaurants are shuttered before even hitting the one-year mark.

New restaurant openings provide needed jobs for a great number of people in the metro area, and these seven small businesses are certainly helping out with the economy. From Chinese to great steaks and Russian caviar, it’s all here.
