Some people sleep around; my wife and I eat around-4 good restaurants a week. We do not have too much choice here, once you eliminate the chains, the hip "scene" places where the food is usually terrible and recognize that all Thai restaurants seem alike to me, as do most Indian and many Chinese, etc. We are forced to go back to all of the "better" ones once every 3-4 months, even if they are far from perfect, just to get some variety (and we keep hoping for improvement). Here's a thought: If your life is so boring, pointless and dull that you always strive for this Nirvana like experience, wherein there's an amalgum of the perfect clientel, spotless service and whatever else that satisfies your fetishism, then obviously it is a very important part of your life. Again, your aristocratic opinions do not match up with where you live. Move out of that cultural cess pit and get an apartment in the Upper East Side and be done with it. Clearly you are out of your element. Either that, or just start ripping coke when you go out. Then I can guarantee you'll have a good time.
