The Year of Fast-Casual Restaurants


#1

I was just thinking how almost all the new places I’ve gone to recently are counter-service.


#2

Not surprised, and predicted a couple of years ago.


#3

So cute how today’s chefs are discovering the McDonalds model. At least we don’t have to deal with or tip surly waiters anymore.

Most of these places use first-rate ingredients, cook to order, and bring the food to your table, so really not much like McDonald’s except for ordering at the counter.
