I think the only celebrity restaurant that I have been in is Emeril's in Vegas. It was excellent so I guess that's my fav.

Tim Horton's.

I was amazed when Tim Horton's opened in Quebec, and were immediately successful. That would be like Derek Jeter's opening in Boston and being immediately successful.

Hmmm, the only one I have been in, that I can think of, is NOLA in New Orleans. (Emeril). It was very good.

Do Thomas Keller or Michel Richard count as celebrities? They run two of the best restaurants I've been to in this world.

Tim Horton is too long-deceased for anyone in Quebec to associate the donut chain with the Toronto Maple Leafs. Plus, that and most Canadiens' fans don't really consider the Leafs to be their team's main rivals. The Habs' main rivals are the Boston Bruins in most people's minds.

I could never pass up the heart attack grill when in Chandler...Luckily Shula's is all over FL

I don't have an actual answer as I've found the few celebrity places I've tried mediocre.

Me favorite place was the recently shuttered Ozzie's Sports Bar in St. Louis, names after the famous St. Louis Cardinal shortstop.

One great restaurant in Los Angeles that USED to be owned by celebrities: Frankie's in the Fairfax District. Frankie Avalon and Tony Danza used to co-own the restaurant with Frankie himself. He later bought them out. As you'd expect it's very old school east coast style Italian-American.
