The task of preserving a building's heritage while making updates for a new generation of diners -- whether the changes regard the restaurant's atmosphere, menu, or otherwise -- is akin to a taste-making (or -breaking) tightrope walk for restaurateurs.
Recently, three landmark restaurants in the Valley -- the Pink Pony, Monti's, and The Wrigley Mansion -- have hit significant milestones. This week, I find out what they're doing (or not doing) to survive in today's dining scene, if the changes are working, and get some personal insight from those in charge.
