    • This Pop-Up Restaurant Asks Whites To Pay More... This is laughable... I would gladly visit, then SHIT on the floor...
      Posted 03/02/2018 10:27 AM
    • ;ahaa;

      As part of a month-long "social experiment," a pop-up restaurant in New Orleans is asking white customers to pay extra for their meal in the name of wealth redistribution.

      According to Civil Eats, the pop-up called Saartj gives white customers - and only white customers - the option to pay "$12 for lunch or the suggested price of $30" while black customers are "charged $12 and also given the option to collect the $18 paid by a white patron as a way to redistribute wealth."

    • Restaurant owner charged after cocaine found in cheese sticks order
      Posted 02/01/2018 05:53 PM
    • Police have released surveillance video of a northwest Indiana restaurant owner arrested for allegedly dealing drugs by hiding cocaine in an order of cheese sticks.

      Carrie DeMoff, the owner of Broad Street Gyros in Griffith, is accused of attempting to deal cocaine out of her restaurant after an incident in November in which a customer found cocaine in her cheese sticks order.

      Police say the video appears to show DeMoff putting what was later found be cocaine into a take-out container. That container was then given to the wrong customer by mistake.

    • Guy Fieri closing his flagship restaurant in NYC
      Posted 12/31/2017 02:26 PM
    • Guy's American Kitchen and Bar on Times Square will close on Dec. 31, which means that starting next year, professional critics and the Yelp army alike will have to find a new target to skewer in New York City. Guy Fieri -- Food Network star, restaurateur, celebrity punching bag -- will officially remove Flavor Town from Manhattan on Jan. 1, focusing his efforts in smaller, perhaps more hospitable markets.

      During its brief, bloated and misbegotten existence, Guy's American (its motto: "Welcome to Flavor Town!") may have been the most mocked restaurant in the country. It started shortly after the place debuted on Sept. 10, 2012. The following day, a Yelper tore into Fieri's three-story, 15,600-square-foot homage to cars, rock-and-roll and America's right to consume unholy amounts of Donkey Sauce:

      "Food was poorly made," the punctuation-averse critic wrote on Yelp, "service was bad and the atmosphere was like a frat party at the lamest frat youve ever seen."

    • Immigrant Who Named His Restaurant "Illegal Tacos": 'I know it's risky'
      Posted 12/13/2017 11:08 AM
    • When thinking up a name for his taco shop at Broad and Lombard Streets in Center City, Florian Furxhiu checked the political winds.

      And so the sign for Illegal Tacos went up Monday, about two weeks before the opening. It's the former Bain's Deli.

      "I wanted to come up with a name that's catchy," said Furxhiu, 32, who emigrated from Albania in 2000. "Some people may be offended, but really, I'm an immigrant, too." He paused and added: "I know it's risky." Alternatively, Furxhiu also extends the meaning to the food - "so authentic, it's illegal."

      A popular Long Beach, Calif., breakfast spot has found itself in the middle of a fried chicken controversy after a Yelp reviewer attacked the restaurant for using Popeyes chicken and passing it off as their own.

      Sweet Dixie Kitchen, a small restaurant specializing in comfort food with a Southern influence, was called out by Yelp user Tyler H., of Los Angeles, who claimed in his review, "Before my friends and I got seated [at the restaurant] we saw them quickly bring in two large boxes of Popeyes to the kitchen."

    • Oh NO $15/hr Dreamers... Burger-Flipping Robot Taking Over In 50 Fast Food Restaurants
      Posted 09/13/2017 01:48 PM
    • CBS Local - As fast food employees across the U.S. continue to protest for higher wages, a California chain restaurant has decided to hire a new staff member that works for free. The competition for the company's low-wage workers: a burger-flipping robot named "Flippy."

      CaliBurger has announced they will be installing the high-tech replacement in 50 of their locations around the world. "Flippy," the robotic kitchen assistant, was created by a California startup company called Miso Robotics and is expected to roll out in 2018.

      "We are excited about the impact Miso's AI-based solutions will have for the restaurant industry," Miso's David Zito said. The CEO added that their creation will likely push workers out of their current jobs.

    • Move over Chick-fil-A - there are some new chicks on the block.

      Zaxby's and Raising Cane's are two of the fastest growing chains in the entire restaurant industry. Zaxby's grew 13.3% in 2016, reaching $1.6 billion in annual sales and earning the 8th spot in Nation's Restaurant New's list of fastest growing chains. Raising Cane's took the No. 1 spot, increased sales by a whopping 25.9% in 2016 to reach $640.5 million.

      Both chains are children of the '90s - millennial chains, if you will, with Zaxby's opening in 1990 and Raising Cane's opening in 1996. Now they're giving the rulers of the roost, like KFC, Chick-fil-A, and Popeyes, a run for their money.

    • Bill Murray opening Caddyshack-themed restaurant near his hometown of Rosemont, Illinois.
      Posted 07/10/2017 10:10 AM
    • Bill Murray is bringing Caddyshack to his hometown, at least nearby where he grew up and in restaurant and bar form. Murray Bros. Caddyshack will be opening later this year in the village of Rosemont, which is just outside of Chicago and adjacent to O'Hare Airport. Murray and his siblings were reared on the North Shore of Chicago in suburban Wilmette. He and his five brothers (Andy, Brian Doyle, Ed, Johnny and Joel) opened the restaurant's first location at the World Golf Village in St. Augustine, FL, in 2001.
      15 Best Movie Stoners of All Time

      From Cheech and Chong to the Dude, the pantheon of screen potheads

      Bill's older brother Brian Doyle-Murray wrote the classic movie, which stars Bill as Carl Spackler, the loveably messed-up greenskeeper who's in constant hot pursuit of an elusive, mischievous gopher. Brian found inspiration for the film when he worked as a caddy at Indian Hill Club in Winnetka. Its flagship restaurant and bar in Florida pays homage to its namesake, with a golf-themed menu that includes crispy potato golf balls, salads aptly listed under "the greens" and items from "the front nine" and "the back nine."

    • Restaurants: The next front for the immigration debate?
      Posted 01/26/2017 10:47 PM
    • CHICAGO - The national debate over immigration policy could be coming to a diner near you.

      From down-home delis to franchise fast-food outlets to upscale bistros, dozens of restaurants nationwide
      are seeking "sanctuary status", a designation owners hope will help protect employees in an immigrant-heavy
      industry and tone down fiery rhetoric sparked by the presidential campaign. First inspired by
      churches, the label is something cities and other public entities have sought to offer local protections
      to immigrants living in the U.S. illegally, whether it's barring police from asking citizens
      about immigration status or refusing to cooperate with federal agents. Roughly 80 restaurants are
      participating thusfar in locations including New York, Minneapolis, Detroit, Boston,
      Oakland, Calif., and Ann Arbor, Mich.

      The restaurants agree to anti-discrimination policies, put up signs on windows that pronounce
      their sanctuary status and receive know-your-rights training, such as webinars on how to
      ask federal immigration agents for proper paperwork if there's an attempted raid. Some will
      also offer a hotline for customers or employees to report any incidents of harassment.

    • Chipotle Closing All Restaurants For A Few Hours To Talk To Employees About E. Coli

      After months of being repeatedly kicked in the butt by humiliating outbreaks of E. coli and norovirus outbreaks, Chipotle has decided it's time to take a short breather to sit down with its employees to talk through this recent crisis.

      Last week, we heard chatter on the Chipotle grapevine that stores were being closed for the day on Feb. 8 for some sort of meeting, but that staffers were being given no indication of what might be said. Store closings? Staffing changes? Updates to the menu?
      We reached out to Chipotle for comment at the time and received no response. But today the Wall Street Journal confirms that stores will indeed be temporarily shuttered on Feb. 8, if only for a few hours.

      But rather than empty the cash register, this person chose a different kind of loot.

      The man is accused of waiting until all the staff went home and locked the restaurant up, before eating six geese, 13 pounds of goose fat and liver, three ducks and an entire one-gallon jar of pickles.
