Does Ithaca have too many restaurants?

Ithaca is known for having the most restaurants per capita of any town, and it may well be true. We have a lot of eateries of one kind or another.

Does having so many restaurants make it hard for all of them to stay afloat?

For the longtime favorites that you don't get to as often as you should because you figure they'll always be there?

Does the resulting churn keep things "fresh" or is it unfair to the restaurants that would do just fine if they weren't competing against less-expensive versions that were "good enough" but not great?
