Before there was even a term for it, Manny and Willette Klausner were “foodies”. They dine out every night of the year. They have money to spend and their passion is good food. They are also equal opportunity diners and they frequented the Coffee Shop for breakfast as well as Three Star Restaurants for dinner. The Klausners were early supporters of the chefs and restaurateurs who were making a difference and raising the standards in Los Angeles. There is no award for being consummate foodies, but a photograph of them in the 528 page book “A Day at elBulli ” by Ferran Adria comes pretty close.
Below is a photo of them at the launch party for The Food Yellow Pages.
