This fall I had lunch at the Duluth Grill. Not only is it near a freeway and right next to a gas station, but its building used to house a chain restaurant. These are not auspicious specs for a transcendent business, but the owners, Tom and Jaima Hanson, are doing everything right. People have responded. The place is wildly popular.
