We ate out at a pricey restaurant over the weekend... the tables were full. My husband took me there for my birthday and the two of us walked out with a $150 bill.

I went to one of the chain restaurants on Sunday and they did not appear to be hurting from the recession at all either. I think they are getting steady business. I believe the restaurants that are providing the good quality food are going to be fine. I still believe we've got another year before we will see a significant change, but I am a little encouraged.

NEXT: Recession: Plenty of available parking
