A restaurateur is a person who opens and runs restaurants professionally. Although over time the term has come to describe any person who owns a restaurant, traditionally it refers to a highly skilled professional who is proficient in all aspects of the restaurant business.

Etymology[edit]

The French word restaurateur comes from the Late Latin term restaurator ("restorer") and from the Latin term restaurare.[1][2][3] The word restauranteur, traditionally considered erroneous, is borrowed from the term restaurant.[4]
