The head honcho of restaurants in this town is, without a doubt, Tom Douglas. Take it from us, this guy is good. Hence his regular appearances in our pages, most notably on our Most Influential People of 2011 list, not to mention his claiming the number one spot on our inaugural Food Establishmentt list.
