Editorial Reviews


"Some of us survivors of the restaurant business have been at it for more than fifty years. Ron is one of them, still engaged in the world of hospitality, always supporting classic, long-lasting establishments, and keeping a strong feeling of integrity and commitment to the art of food."

--Piero Selvaggio, Owner, Valentino's, Santa Monica, California

"Ron has spent a lifetime creating successful, iconic restaurants that offer people great food, great atmosphere and places to make memories. As a longtime partner of ours it's been wonderful to witness his continued success. The restaurant industry is full of challenges, yet Ron has identified strategies to ensure that his establishments continue to thrive. There is much to be learned from his experience as a third-generation restaurateur."

--Kent McClelland, President and CEO of Shamrock Foods Company

"Ron is a classic. He wanders through life and picks up the best bits, the juiciest morsels, serving them up with an ageless wit. His story reminds us to laugh on the journey and sing in the rain. Ron sets the table for a feast for the soul."

Marin and Noah von Blom, Owners, ARC Food & Librations, Costa Mesa, California
