The Tightrope Walks of Three Legendary Restaurants

It isn't easy running a Valley landmark -- especially when it's a restaurant.

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.

Read my story this week on how the Valley's legendary restaurants keep up with the times here. Want to see some cool past and present pics? Get to the slideshow here.
