In 1950, Norma Laine's aunt bought her a copy of Gourmet magazine. Not long after that, Laine, co-owner of Cha Cha Cha Encino, says, "I remember my parents coming to dinner, and I made a cheesecake [recipe] out of that magazine--the original New York cheesecake.

There are a lot of smart people in the food world, but not many smarter than Ruth Reichl. So when she says formal fine dining is going to make a comeback, maybe it's a good idea to pay attention. Reichl was the restaurant critic for the Los Angeles Times in the 1980s and '90s, then restaurant critic for the New York Times, editor of Gourmet magazine and author of a series of best-selling food memoirs. I was talking to her for a story I'm working on when she pointed out that "the people who really spend a lot of money in restaurants now are the 20-30somethings and they really think of restaurants as an important part of their lives.
