I have a Restaurant Owner who is also the Chef.  He works a lot - they offer a Lunch and a Dinner Service.  He also eats out a lot, or has coffees etc offsite.  Are any of these deductible as an expense for his business? The owner claims that they are Researching other establishments, and also because he works such long hours.  I dont think that this is a legitimate deduction, but what do others think??

If he is a chef and owns a restaurant then he might be eating out to find the flaws in his food so that it could be fixed to increase the quality of his food.
