  • Eleven Madison Park, the three-Michelin-starred restaurant in New York City that recently reopened after a revamp, now sells a cup of coffee for $24. The restaurant’s coffee director spends about 10 minutes preparing one cup of coffee, using rare high-end beans and fancy machines. That’s the cost of almost two pounds of Popeyes popcorn chicken, just to put things in perspectives.
  • Speaking of Popeyes, this California restaurant proudly admits that it literally serves Popeyes fried chicken on its menu. A customer called the restaurant out in this hilarious Yelp review:

Everyone loves some spicy, Cajun fried chicken, but paying $12+ for it at a local restaurant that claims “big flavor with conscious healthier cooking methods”? No thanks.

  • Pizza Hut took almost two weeks to tell customers that the chain got hacked. Many angry customers took to social media to bring attention to the issue.
  • Guess which new restaurant startup just raised $5 million? Called Allset, it allows diners to book a table and order a meal before they even arrive at the restaurant.
  • Here’s Chris Hemsworth living his best shoe-free life while enjoying an expensive meal at one of Sydney’s top Japanese restaurants.
