They continue push each other in developing recipes techniques and signature menus that keep us coming back for more. We all have our favorite menu items and while one person may prefer one restaurant over another for a particular entree or appetizer the fact is they all are a genuine article and clearly worth the effort to imitate. Just a note in regard to businesses (especially non-restaurant) some have to take steps and go further and get patents or licenses on their discoveries to help protect them from being copied. With restaurants it is a little tougher as getting patents and licensing on food is much more difficult and not quite the same as building up a new technological advance like an I-pad.
Some may even look to make improvements on the original. It can be for other reasons like notoriety or personal challenge for pride and maybe even some kicks. Think about this comedians can get more laughs if they are good at imitating some one else right? If they are really good at it this helps bring more people to their show. Just as is done with so many other things that are made there is always a group of these interested individuals that like to do things themselves. These people will go out of their way to copy favorite recipes from all of these restaurants. I would venture to say that if one were to interview many of these DIY (Do It Yourself) people it would be primarily in an effort to be able to save money as a main reason initially.
Have you ever tried to make something just like your favorite restaurant and while it turned out ok it just didnt quite taste the same as what TGIF or Olive Garden serves? I know I have and it seemed like all the effort was fine but the result on a scale of 1 to 10 was maybe a 6 at best. To get a 9 or 10 just seems impossible and you are better off giving up and just go to the restaurant instead. Well guess what? As there is with anything worth while there are those few people who do try to imitate these restaurant recipes to the Nth degree. You could almost refer to them as recipe hackers. They can be moms dads or professionals and no matter who these people have a goal and will put in the time and effort to break a recipe down.
