I used to live in Scottsdale and frequent the plaza this restaurant is in. No one's ever in there. It's absolutely true about the actual food and drama in there.
65% of the businesses in that plaza have closed. Their restaurant is right next to an extremely busy movie theatre and Pita Jungle. They are in business because her husband, Sam, is mega-wealthy. Her diamonds are real. He pays their lease to keep it open. Word is, he's cheated on her = no divorce.
