"People ask me every day if Kent's place is hurting our business. I tell them, 'heck no, they are helping it.' I look at it this way: Everybody loves comfort food. Kent serves the rich guys, and I serve the guys who used to be rich. And believe me, there are more of the latter than ever before." (Shannon Wynne, on the opening of Kent Rathbun's Blue Plate Kitchen next to his own Flying Fish. As quoted by Alan Peppard in the Dallas Morning News).
