There's some charming and laughable details to the event. Be sure to ask Chef David about it the next time you visit.
Tom Cruise is just one of many cherished customers. John Ritter has also pulled up a bar stool and had a bite to eat. Same is true for cast members from "An Officer and a Gentleman," "Designing Women," "Northern Exposure," "Honey I Shrunk the Kids" and a long list of other film stars.
