Q: Qual é a diferença entre the owner of the restaurant e the restaurant's owner ?
A: There is no difference in meaning; it's just a question of what sounds more natural. We usually avoid 's with long nouns and inanimate nouns. In this case, since the noun is restaurant, I think "the owner of the restaurant" sounds slightly better, although "the restaurant's owner" is not wrong.

A: They essentially mean the same thing but I think that they are used in slightly different situations. I will share some examples that come to mind:

Visa holders this way (e.g. at airport)
Mobility card holders can use the disabled car spaces

A: A owner is someone who owns the property while a landlord is someone who you could say you allow to live on your property, you own it but say you are living in a apartment, you would have a landlord, but if you live in a house you would be the owner. You own the house versus in a apartment you live there but you do not own it.

A: Something belongs to its owner; things are merely in the hands of a possessor. I'm the owner of a car. I loan it to you for a couple of hours or a couple of days.

But someone else possesses it now -- and that possessor may pretend to be its owner.

Maybe I'm wrong about your intention, but I suggested the other sentence because I think it more closely matches the meaning of "이제까지 봤던 음식점 사장 중에 가장 친절하다." But "The owner is the kindest person I've ever met" is closer to "그 음식점 사장은 이제까지 봤던 사람 중에 가장 친절하다."
