1. Leave getItem untouched. Move all that SQL-related stuff into the
retrieveItem method which *is intended* to be overriden. 

2. Move newItem stuff into Specialist. You have mixed 'Restaurant' and
the 'FoodStore' in this snippet :-) Do this instead:

Specialist:

  def getItem( self, key) :
    item = self._src().getItem( key)
    if item is None :
      item = self._src().newItem( key)
    return item

  def _src( self) :
    return self.rackList[0].__of__( self)


Rack:
  
  def retrieveItem( self, key) :
    item = self.sql_get( key)
    blah blah blah ...
    return item
