an excerpt from the article:

'Revising the Recipe

I realized that I had had the equation backwards. I was making decisions based on what I wanted. I hadn't been willing to make the compromises (as I saw it) sometimes necessary to create a broad coalition of customers—something absolutely crucial in a town with fewer people than the number that walked by Etats-Unis in a day. In our own minds, we were the best restaurant around—but the fact was, we weren't connecting with our customers.'
