Running a small fine dining restaurant certainly has its challenges, but the rewards far outweigh the day-to-day struggles. One of the main reasons we so enjoy running The Lark is the special people we have met throughout the years. Many of our patrons have become like family to us. What may have started as a couple coming to The Lark for dinners back in the 80s in many cases has now evolved to family dinners including their children, and in some cases grandchildren. We look forward to hearing the updates on who has gone off to college, gotten married or had a baby.
Sometimes the news is not so good, as cherished regulars might fall ill or pass away. This week has brought much sadness to the staff at The Lark as two of our favorite patrons have parted. Dr. Thomas Kwyer, who drove up from Toledo regularly with his family to dine with us; and Anna Rose Waak, who enjoyed dozens of our monthly theme dinners with her husband, were wonderful people and the world was a better place for them having been in it. They will be missed by everyone at The Lark.
