    When the coronavirus pandemic forced restaurants to shut their dining rooms, many chains slimmed down their menus to make service smoother — and some of those changes may be permanent.  States and cities across the country are easing restrictions, but menus are unlikely to snap back to their pre-pandemic status. Bloated menus can overwhelm customers, slow down the kitchen and lead to longer drive-thru lines. The crisis gives restaurant chains an opportunity to reevaluate what they're serving and to focus on driving sales. McDonald's, for example, used the pandemic as a chance to accelerate its plans to trim its U.S. menu. The Chicago-based company analyzed more than 100 items to decide what changes to make.McDonald'sPeople dine outside McDonald's in Union Square...

Kitchen United balked. Kitchen United is a virtual kitchen, playing host to 10 or so already-established restaurants in each facility. The businesses save money on rent and labor by operating from something like a WeWork for restaurants. Efficiency is the byword here. Customers generally use apps to order—maybe from more than one restaurant at the same time, if one person wants...

To survive, head chef and owner Emmanuel Stroobant knew this had to change. The Belgium-born chef came up with Virtual Saint Pierre, a unique experience where diners can indulge in the restaurant's...

    What a long, strange trip it's been. For more than twenty years, Vesta was the coolest kid on a block that the restaurant immediately made cool when it opened in 1997. There wasn't much happening in the 1800 block of Blake Street at the time; Coors Field had opened only two years earlier, and the energy of LoDo was just beginning to make its way up from Larimer Square. But Josh Wolkon, a 25-year-old University of Vermont alum who'd moved to Colorado from Boston — "I couldn't figure Denver out," he recalls, especially its uneven dining scene — had decided that he wanted to open a restaurant, and landed on this spot.

    ANDERSONVILLE — An upscale Mexican restaurant on Clark Street has rebranded as The Bird Cage, an inclusive and body-positive restaurant-club in the heart of Andersonville. Octavio Cantina & Kitchen, 5310 N. Clark St., reopened July 10 as The Bird Cage, which owner Martin Cournane describes as “bondage meets cabaret.” While Octavio was a trendy and vibrant restaurant and bar, The Bird Cage is an adult-themed spot complete with a stage for performances, a DJ booth, massive disco balls and a “bondage wall.” “This is not dinner theater,” Cournane said. “It’s a place where people can come and let their hair down.” Burlesque dancers are depicted throughout The Bird Cage, 5310 N.

    Scott Slater has grilling in his blood. At the age of 27, he founded Slater's 50/50 in Anaheim Hills, California, and has been steadily growing the company since his first restaurant, built on the concept of a burger made with 50 percent beef and 50 percent ground bacon, opened in 2009. "I sold hot dogs outside of a Home Depot before that," he points out. That's a modest way of explaining that he owned several dozen hot dog carts in southern California that served as a springboard to Slater's, which debuts this week in Denver thanks to franchisee Charlie Murray. Slater says all but one of the 13 current Slater's 50/50 burger joints (with three or four more under construction)...
    The many fans of Racines were devastated to learn last week that owners Lee Goodfriend and David Racine would not be reopening their Governor's Park neighborhood eatery after all, and so there would be no chance to have a long, slow goodbye before the originally promised closing date of January 2021, when their deal to sell the property goes through. But Goodfriend and Racine are only two of many restaurant owners facing the "sad, sad, sad" situation, as Racine put it, of closing up shop because of the potential health risks of reopening. And in many other cases, the decision not to reopen — or to shut down after reopening — is prompted not just by health concerns, but by tough economic...

    In 1999 I had very few friends. So few I’d leave work most Fridays knowing I wouldn’t likely speak to anyone until I clocked back in on Monday morning. It was, until this year’s pandemic, the loneliest time of my life. One weekend, flipping through the local paper, I saw a listing for a weekly Sunday night poetry slam at the Mercury Cafe in Denver. Having heard rumors about the magic of spoken word, I bussed the forty minutes from Boulder and walked two miles through the city to a twinkling urban heaven surrounded by sunflowers taller than myself. Pushing open the red-velvet curtain of the Merc’s entrance, I stepped inside, not knowing that step would be the most impactful...

We’ve asked everybody to be on their Ps and Qs.” MORE: City Cracks Down On Astoria Crowds After Videos Surface Showing People Not Following Social Distancing Rules The city says it will reassess the situation in a week.

    Enrique Porta Updated: 07/19/2020 02: 55h Save Related opinions The confinement associated with this unprecedented crisis has caused a abrupt and immediate transfer from outside to inside the home, and from offline to online, of different activities in multiple areas. The home has not only become a refuge from the health threat, but also a center of experiences of all kinds, both professional and personal and social. In this context, delivery has been, practically, the only possible business alternative for the catering sector for months, which has exponentially accelerated its development. An extreme proof of concept for a channel that, although it has been active for decades, supported by telephone sales, already showed evident signs of acceleration in an...
    After closing along with the rest of Denver's restaurants on March 17 to stop the spread of COVID-19, Racines didn't offer to-go and delivery, but promised to come back when it was safe — and then host a long goodbye before shuttering altogether when a sale of the property closed in January. But this week, Lee Goodfriend and David Racine, the owners of the popular longtime eatery that was once part of a three-restaurant homegrown chain, delivered the sad news: Racines will not reopen. Instead, the place will remain closed until the sale goes through in January. Plans are in the works to built apartments at the site; after over four decades in the restaurant business, Goodfriend and Racine will...

    Zoom In IconArrows pointing outwards As the coronavirus pandemic upends the restaurant industry, some chains that were already struggling financially have been pushed into bankruptcy.  Trade groups estimate that up to 30% of restaurants could permanently close because of the pandemic. While independent restaurants are more at risk, dining room closures and consumers eating more at home has also strained chains, particularly those in the casual dining sector. The Paycheck Protection Program provided many restaurants, including large chains like P.F. Chang's and Five Guys, with much needed funds to continue operating. But coronavirus cases are once again surging, causing governors to once again close dining rooms to customers. The crisis will likely change the restaurant industry forever. Experts say that...
    ALAMEDA — Ken and Vickie Monize dreamed of retiring next year. After working seven days a week for decades at their family-owned diner — Ole’s Waffle Shop — they bought a flat lot in a Santa Rosa subdivision with a view of soaring redwood trees behind the back fence. Architectural plans were already drawn up for a one-story ranch house and swimming pool. They promised each other they would learn to relax — yet still keep an eye on the business. Then the pandemic struck. Like restaurants coast to coast that have been crushed by coronavirus shutdowns, the second-generation owners of this landmark diner that predates the Great Depression and routinely drew long lines for pecan waffles and fresh-squeezed orange...

They’re so delicious you’ll be tempted to turn on your oven no matter how hot it’s getting outside. What Are Swedish Cinnamon Buns? Sweden is the land of pastries and baked goods, and the kanelbulle (cinnamon roll) is considered the most popular of all. It’s not surprising then that October 4th (Kanelbullens Dag) is a national holiday that celebrates the treat.
