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

The French word restaurateur (pronounced [statoe?]) comes from the Late Latin term restaurator ("restorer") and from the Latin term restaurare.[1][2][3] The word restaurateur is simply French for a person who owns or runs a restaurant.[4]

A less common variant spelling restauranteur is formed from the "more familiar" term restaurant[5] with the French suffix -eur borrowed from restaurateur. It is considered a misspelling by some.[4][5]
