From Burger King's Impossible whoppers to Dunkin' Beyond Meat sausage breakfast sandwiches, fast food may drive the conversation when it comes to a meatless future. But a quieter revolution is happening at the highest ends of the restaurant world: The number of courses that highlight beef, pork, lamb, and poultry are dwindling at places where a $200 tasting menu is a bargain. The reasons vary from political to personal. New York's recent foie gras ban, and a similar one upheld by the Supreme Court of California, are leading to the disappearance of the luxurious goose and duck liver-a fine dining fixture and lightning rod for animal welfare advocates-from cities with a high concentration of tasting menus. Also, chefs are eating more healthfully and thoughtfully and don't want their customers to be crushed with heavy proteins at the end of a meal. (Seafood, perceived to be less environmentally damaging than cows and pigs, is still in play for most elite chefs.) The American public's … [Read more...] about First, Burger King.

LONE TREE — An In-N-Out Burger joint slated to pop up near Park Meadows Mall next year could attract more than 1,300 hungry carfuls of customers a day seeking the famous Double-Double at the iconic California eatery — and all that beef could generate monster-sized traffic jams for this fast-growing suburb. The Lone Tree City Council is scheduled to vote Tuesday night on whether to give the final OK to the fast-food chain, which plans to erect and open a 3,867-square-foot restaurant at 9171 Westview Road about a year from now. Such enormous volume is expected at the Lone Tree In-N-Out, especially during its first year of operation, that the company is building a 26-car-deep drive-thru lane to handle the masses — the second-largest drive-thru queue among the burger chain’s more than 350 stores in six states, according to city documents. There will also be 47 parking spaces for those who prefer to venture inside for their food.“We expect to have a lot of … [Read more...] about In-N-Out Burger expects its Lone Tree restaurant to be so busy its drive-thru lane will be able to fit 26 cars
In-N-Out Burger should be serving up stacked 4×4 burgers and animal style fries in the metro area by this time next year. The Lone Tree City Council on Tuesday night voted 5-0 to approve construction of a 3,867-square-foot In-N-Out restaurant at 9171 Westview Road, just northwest of Park Meadows Mall. The Southern California-based chain, which has only expanded to five states beyond the Golden State in its 71 years of existence, has a rabid following devoted to its limited menu of burgers, fries and shakes. The Lone Tree restaurant is expected to open in late 2020. In documents the company submitted to the city, it said the Douglas County In-N-Out could be the first one to open in the state, possibly outpacing an outlet slated for Colorado Springs. That restaurant is also set for a 2020 opening.

PLAINFIELD, IL — Plainfield's whiskey lovers have something to look forward to in 2020. A new whiskey-and-cocktail focused bar - named, appropriately enough, the Next Whiskey Bar - is set to open in the village in early 2020. The bar is owned by Dan Tacone and Ben Devee, two veterans of the service industry. They also co-own the Next-Mex restaurant in Lemont, and a prior Next Whiskey Bar (or NWB, as they also call it) location that has been open in Lisle for about three years. Tacone and Devee said they chose to expand into Plainfield after considering a number of potential sites. "We reached out to a bunch of towns, and Plainfield got right back in touch with us... [Plainfield Economic Development Manager Jake Melrose] came out and met with us, put us in contact with a couple different realtors, showed us properties that were for rent; what was coming down the pipeline," Devee said."We looked in Elmhurst, we looked in Western Springs; we reached out to La Grange, Clarendon … [Read more...] about New Hangout, ‘Next Whiskey Bar,’ Coming To Plainfield In 2020
