    What could be more romantic than proposing marriage while eating a hamburger? But if the ring is too small or too big, can the couple send it back to the chef and ask for a different one?

    Restaurant offers $3,000 burger with engagement ring
    The Associated Press, Feb 7 2018 3:11 AM

    For $3,000, patrons at one Boston restaurant can order a burger that comes with an engagement ring on the side. Pauli’s in the city’s North End says with 48-hours’ notice, the restaurant’s Big Boy burger will arrive with a 7/8 carat Neil Lane ring nestled in the bun. The ring will come framed with round diamonds and a 14k gold band. The burger is part of a new Valentine’s Day special. Restaurant owner Paul Barker says there are no confirmed orders so far, but there are several "very interested" people.

    What a great idea this is. Dunkin' Donuts has no recycling programs -- so now, instead of millions of polystyrene cups winding up in landfills, millions of paper cups will wind up in landfills.

    First we learn that a chemical used in McDonald's french fries may cure baldness and now they're offering an exclusive new soda flavor. Boy oh boy, now we just have to eat at McDonald's more often!

    There's a brand-new flavor of Sprite but you can get it only at McDonald's
    Business Insider, Jan 30 2018 4:!9 PM

    McDonald's is selling a new flavor of Sprite. MIX by Sprite Tropic Berry combines the original taste of Sprite with strawberry, orange and pineapple flavors. It's similar to Sprite Remix, which had strawberry and pineapple flavors and was available for a limited time on store shelves. But with the added orange, this is a completely new flavor exclusive to the fast food chain. By summer 2018, nearly all McDonald's nationwide will have the new soda flavor.

    Yes, because driving a mile to a Taco Bell and sitting at a table to eat a chalupa takes so much effort. This gives people yet another reason to stay home and be lazy.

    Yes, because when you think of nachos, the first country that comes to mind is Italy, right?

    Yes, because when you think of chicken, the first fast-food chain that comes to mind is McDonald's, right?

    McDonald’s bets that 'Better Chicken' can keep growth run going
    Bloomberg, Feb 13 2018 8:27 AM

    Decades after adding chicken sandwiches to its menu, McDonald's has made becoming a "credible chicken player" one of its top priorities, according to internal documents reviewed by Bloomberg News. The project’s code name: "Better Chicken." The push -- laid out in a letter to franchisees, who operate about 90% of U.S. locations -- aims to extend a three-year growth run by being more like Chick-fil-A.

    McDonald’s has already taken steps to elevate its poultry, which was long seen as a serviceable if uninspiring part of the menu. It’s vowed to stop serving chicken with antibiotics and removed artificial preservatives from nuggets. The chain also rolled out Southern-style sandwiches and tenders, which are coated in a crispy buttermilk breading similar to that of Chick-fil-A. The idea now is to build on that push and establish McDonald’s as a top-tier chicken restaurant rather than just a burger joint. McDonald’s, based in Oak Brook, Illinois, declined to comment on the specifics of the letter.

    The new Happy Meals are causing a lot of unhappiness. McDonald's says the removal of cheeseburgers from Happy Meals is "a gentle nudge in encouraging more positive choices." Parents say what they feed their children should be their decision, not McDonald's -- and they eat at McDonald's because they like the food, not because they care about "positive choices." And what the heck is wrong with chocolate milk?

    This gives a whole new meaning to the expression "going green."

    Mark Cuban, Barbara Corcoran invest $400,000 in an avocado-only restaurant
    Business Insider, Feb 18 2018

    On the February 11 episode of ABC's Shark Tank, Mark Cuban and Barbara Corcoran invested in Brooklyn eatery Avocaderia. Each investor offered $200,000 for a 10% stake, giving the restaurant a $2 million valuation. The fast-casual restaurant, founded by the Italian trio of Alessandro Biggi, Francesco Brachetti and Alberto Gramini, is making the most of the millennial avocado craze by serving avocado-based salads, sandwiches, bowls, smoothies and desserts.

    Biggi came up with the idea two years ago when he was living in Seattle. "I wasn't the best chef but one thing I could make was avocado toast," he said. He called Brachetti and within a year the concept of opening "the world's first avocado bar" had turned into a popular restaurant in Brooklyn. On average, the restaurant serves around 250 people per day and goes through at least 25 cases of avocados per week. Biggi hopes to open 20 more locations in the next five years.
