SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — OpenTable, the world’s leading provider of online restaurant reservations and part of Booking Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: BKNG), is adding more romance and less squabbling to Valentine’s Day planning this year. With Matchmaker, an online tool available at www.opentable.com/matchmaker, OpenTable is making it easy for diners to find and book the perfect restaurant for Valentine’s Day based on a series of questions including party type and size, budget, ideal ambience and desired cuisine.

Matchmaker easily and quickly combs through relevant options to deliver top recommendations for the special occasion. Based on a recent survey*, the Matchmaker couldn’t come at a better time. Deciding on what to eat is a source of anxiety for many Americans, with 1 in 2 survey participants saying they would rather do dishes than engage in an endless debate.

“Valentine’s Day is the biggest dining day of the year. Last year, we saw over 2 million seated diners on the holiday,” said Caroline Potter, Chief Dining Officer at OpenTable. “With our Matchmaker, we want to ensure it’s a joyous, carefree occasion, when people can focus efforts on being with significant others, loved ones or friends, rather than stressing over where to go or what to eat.”

OpenTable Matchmaker
OpenTable’s Matchmaker helps deliver the right restaurant when you need it most. This Valentine’s Day, whether dining out with girlfriends or embarking on a first date, looking to spend like a boss or sensibly save, seeking a high-energy vibe or someplace low key, craving Italian or vegetarian-friendly eats, the Matchmaker has diners covered. It’s a good thing, too. The survey also revealed participants:

Would rather engage in mundane household tasks, such as cleaning the dishes or taking out the garbage, than argue over what to eat
4 in 10 Americans will just give into their partner’s wishes in order to settle food disputes
For singles embarking on a first date, dining out can still be stressful, with nearly 1 in 2 agreeing that they will be judged by the restaurant they select
Conveniently available via desktop, and mobile friendly, the restaurant generator takes a few seconds, quickly offering diners a series of available restaurant options to book for the big day.

The secret to a lasting romantic relationship? The survey also found 50 percent of participants believe that enjoying nightly dinner and conversations is the secret sauce to going the distance. While love can be celebrated year-round, 6 in 10 agree that dining out on Valentine’s Day leads to a greater chance of getting lucky compared to other nights of the year.

“This underscores our belief that dining out is so much more than meets the eye,” added Potter. “We are honored to play a role in such an important tradition and will always seek ways to connect diners with the perfect restaurant for every occasion.”

Einstein Bros. Bagels Celebrates National Bagel Day with Free Bagel and Shmear


Theo tin Einstein Bros. Bagels hay prnewswire.com

Each Free Bagel with Purchase Provides Guests a Minimum of 9 Grams of Protein


LAKEWOOD, Colo., Feb. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — In celebration of National Bagel Day, Einstein Bros. Bagels is offering a free bagel and shmear with purchase to all guests on Saturday, February 9. This deal is part of the chain’s newly-launched “Power of the Bagel” campaign, which is shining light on the surprising amount of protein in bagels.

“National Bagel Day is the perfect time to celebrate how much protein bagels actually have,” says Registered Dietitian Kelly Springer, MS, RD, CDN. “We regularly see people looking for plant-based proteins that provide essential nutrients while still tasting delicious. With at least 9 grams of protein, Einstein Bros.’ bagels are a plant-based breakfast food that don’t compromise on taste.”

The power of Einstein Bros. bagels is real, averaging 10 grams of protein. While bagels may not be comparable in other nutrients, any one Einstein Bros. bagel contains as much or more protein than a large egg, three slices of turkey, two tablespoons of creamy peanut butter, or one cup of two percent milk.

The National Bagel Day offer from Einstein Bros. Bagels is available at participating locations, excluding license stores inside of colleges, airports, hotels and hospitals. Learn more about the power of the bagel by visiting www.powerofthebagel.com and www.einsteinbros.com.

Get FREE Bacon with Anything on the Menu at McDonald’s First-Ever Bacon Hour, Because There’s No Such Thing as Too Much Bacon


Theo tin Krispy Kreme hay businesswire.com


A Whole Hour to Get Bacon with Anything on the Menu—That’s Right—ANYTHING. One Day, One Hour Only, in Celebration of Bacon’s Arrival to Three Menu Classics

In celebration of bacon’s limited time arrival to the Classics – the Big Mac® Bacon burger, Quarter Pounder®* Bacon burger and Cheesy Bacon Fries – McDonald’s is makin’ bacon dreams come true by giving fans even more … you guessed it…bacon! On January 29, from 4:00-5:00 p.m. local time, McDonald’s is hosting a first-of-its-kind, nationwide bacon bash called Bacon Hour. For 60 minutes, customers will be able to get thick cut, Applewood smoked bacon with anything on the menu, at no additional cost. And is there anything better than free bacon? (Spoiler alert – there isn’t).

As if bacon on our three Classics wasn’t enough, now the whole McDonald’s menu is ready to be bacon’ized. Customers will be given two half pieces of bacon on the side with any purchase and can add it to whatever item they wish. It’s an ode to bacon. Filet-O-Fish® with bacon. Even a Hot Fudge Sundae with bacon. You name it…with bacon.

“When we said there’s no such thing as too much bacon, we weren’t kidding. January 29, we’ll be upping the bacon ante—the bac-ante, if you will—and celebrating this glorious food favorite like never before,” said Chef Michael Haracz, McDonald’s Manager of Culinary Innovation. “I love bacon. America loves bacon. I really can’t wait to see the crazy and daring combinations our customers put together.”

And with all this bacon, it begs the question: is bacon the best thing to happen to the classic Big Mac, fresh beef** Quarter Pounder and World Famous Fries® or are our Classics the best thing to ever happen to bacon? Let the debate begin.

But there’s no debating that McDonald’s food keeps getting more craveable and delicious – from fresh beef Quarter Pounder burgers, Buttermilk Crispy Tenders, café-quality espresso beverages like the McCafé Caramel Macchiato, Cappuccino and Americano, and not to mention the Classics with Bacon earlier this month.

TLDR: Bacon Hour. McDonald’s. One day, January 29. One hour, 4-5 p.m. (local time). At participating restaurants nationwide***. An hour long celebration of bacon’s arrival to the Classics where customers will be able to get FREE bacon on the side with anything on the menu.

Bacon Hour Lineup: Bacon Sundae, Bacon Big Mac, Bacon McNuggets, Bacon Filet O Fish, Bacon McFlurry

*Weight before cooking 4oz.

**Available at most restaurants in contiguous U.S. Not available in Alaska, Hawaii and U.S. Territories.

***Limit one side of bacon per person with any order.

2019 MICHELIN Guide San Francisco Features Eight New Restaurants in the Bib Gourmand Category


Theo tin Michelin hay prnewswire.com

13th edition of the Guide recognizes San Francisco restaurants that won’t break the bank


SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Michelin today released the list of 68 Bib Gourmand restaurants in San Francisco the week before its 2019 star selection, featuring eight new additions.

Michelin inspectors have been eating their way around San Francisco for over 13 years. Introduced in 1997, Bib Gourmand restaurants are awarded by Michelin’s inspectors because they serve high quality food while making it possible to order two courses and a glass of wine or dessert for $40 or less (tax and gratuity not included).

The 2019 MICHELIN® Guide San Francisco includes 42 types of cuisine, highlighting the Bay Area’s diverse and varied dining scene. Notable cuisines amongst the Bib Gourmands include Middle Eastern (Dyafa), Mexican (Luna Mexican Kitchen) and Cambodian (Nyum Bai).

The MICHELIN Guide, renowned for its anonymous food inspectors, was created at the turn of the 20th century by the founding Michelin brothers to provide motorists with useful information about where they could service and repair their cars, and eventually where to find a good quality meal as well.

The 2019 Michelin-starred restaurants will be released on Thursday, Nov. 29. The Guide will go on sale Tuesday, Dec. 4 at major book sellers for a suggested retail price of $18.99.

Ciccio is located in Yountville and is packed for a reason. The quality of execution was especially impressive from the pizza to the pasta.

Dyafa is a waterfront stunner with specialty warm breads, flavorful dips and shareable Middle-Eastern fare.

El Molino Central is a sunny Sonoma favorite. From fish tacos and Oaxacan red mole to nachos, this kitchen is the intersection of quality ingredients, full-flavored dishes and refined technique.

Gran Electrica is a Brooklyn export that brings a serious dose of fun and energy to downtown Napa. The quality is consistent from coast to coast.

Luna Mexican Kitchen offers delicious Mexican fare in San Jose with this charming new spot. The dishes are made with truly high-quality ingredients.

Nyum Bai is a wonderful addition to the Oakland area. The chef confidently delivers a personal take on Cambodian cuisine, served with a side of Khmer rock.

Soba Ichi is helmed by the team that opened Berkeley’s Ippuku. This time, the focus is on excellently crafted, small batch soba.

Teni East Kitchen offers plenty of deep flavour in this sun-drenched Temescal charmer. Southeast Asian cuisine meets California in creative and delicious dishes.

Restaurant Sales Continue To Improve As Guests Visit Less But Spend More


Theo tin TDn2K hay prweb.com

Same-store sales growth on a two-year basis was 1.1 percent during October according to TDn2K’s Black Box Intelligence™ data, based on weekly sales from over 30,000+ locations representing 170+ brands and nearly $71 billion in annual sales.


DALLAS (PRWEB) NOVEMBER 09, 2018

Headlines continue to be encouraging for the industry, as chain restaurants posted their fifth consecutive month of positive same-store sales growth during October. This month’s sales growth rate of 0.8 percent does represent a slowdown from the 1.2 percent reported for September and the 1.8 percent for August, but there was a promising sign in October’s results. Same-store sales growth on a two-year basis was 1.1 percent during October. As a comparison, two-year sales growth rates averaged -0.9 percent for the previous six months.
These insights come from TDn2K’s Black Box Intelligence™ data, based on weekly sales from over 30,000+ locations representing 170+ brands and nearly $71 billion in annual sales.

“As the industry heads into the fourth quarter, the fear was that tougher sales comparisons from Q4 of last year would throw restaurant sales back into negative growth territory”, said Victor Fernandez, vice president of insights and knowledge for TDn2K. “For reference, two out of the three months had positive sales growth during the fourth quarter of 2017. No other month of 2017 reported positive sales growth. But seeing restaurants grow their sales during October on top of positive sales growth during the comparable month a year ago suggests the industry’s sales momentum is robust and can carry into the new year.”

Less Guests But More Spending Fuels Sales Growth

Although positive sales growth is welcome news for restaurants, the way this growth was achieved during October tempers optimism in the strength of the industry by putting a spotlight on its problems. Same-store guest traffic was -2.2 percent in October, a 0.8 percentage point drop from the growth rate recorded for September. Furthermore, it was the weakest month for traffic growth since May.

An increase in average guest check year over year continues to fuel positive sales growth for restaurants. “Guest check growth accelerated in October,” said Fernandez. “At 3.0 percent, check growth during October was the highest we’ve seen in the last three years. Many brands have been raising their menu prices throughout the year, use of promotions to drive traffic may be slowing down and strong consumer confidence plus raising wages may be motivating consumers to spend a more when they dine out. Likely, we are seeing a combination of several or all of these factors.”

Consumer Spending Remains Robust, Sparking Hope For Strong Holiday Season

“The economy continues to expand strongly, but there are a few signs that the growth is moderating,” explained Joel Naroff, president of Naroff Economic Advisors and TDn2K economist. “The housing market is trending downward as mortgage rates and prices continue to climb. The trade battles have initially enlarged rather than shrunk the trade deficit. Business investment has been disappointing, given the surge in profits. But consumer spending remains robust and most importantly, wage gains are accelerating. That has offset the rise in prices.”

“While inflation-adjusted earnings are not soaring, they are growing fast enough to sustain solid household demand. Additionally, given the high level of consumer confidence, the holiday season should be very good,” continued Naroff. “That bodes well for restaurants. There is one significant concern, though: the savings rate is falling and, unless wage gains accelerate, the deterioration in spending power could cause households to cut back. The current draw down on savings is not sustainable. Expect demand to be good over the next six months, but by the spring, without better wage gains, consumers will probably become more restrained in their spending habits.”

Fast Casual and Casual Dining Continue to Find Success

Positive sales growth was widespread across most industry segments in October. All segments except for family dining achieved positive same-store sales growth.

The best performing segments based on sales growth were fast casual and casual dining. Both had growth rates above 1.0 percent in October. After having struggled through the last two years, these segments have emerged in 2018 as the most improved in terms of same-store sales performance. In fact they are the only segments with positive sales growth during each of the last five months.

Much discussion has centered around the viability of casual dining in this changing consumer landscape. However, the data shows some brands in the second largest segment within the industry have been able to turn the segment around this year.

Restaurant Staffing Pressures Intensify, Likely To Drive Rising Labor Costs

Over the last two years, restaurant operators have been citing staffing and employee retention among the biggest concerns they face. After a small relief from turnover rates that appeared to be stabilizing in recent months, turnover increased again during September for restaurant hourly employees and restaurant managers.

Additionally, restaurants need to keep up with replacing those employees that leave.

TDn2K’s People Report data shows the number of jobs in chain restaurants grew by 1.7 percent during September, after a year-over-year growth of 2.1 percent during the previous month. According to People Report’s Q3 Workforce Index, 58 percent of restaurant companies plan to add hourly workers during the fourth quarter, while 51 percent said they plan to add management staff.

Not surprisingly given the environment, the latest People Report Workforce Index also revealed that about 70 percent of restaurant companies reported an increase in their staffing difficulties for both restaurant hourly employees and managers.

As the labor market experiences its lowest unemployment rates in almost fifty years, restaurants should be expecting rising labor costs ahead. With plenty of employment opportunities in the market, restaurant employees (particularly in management and back of the house) frequently mention pay among the main reasons they are quitting their jobs.

Higher wages and salaries will have to be a part of many restaurants’ employment offerings if they are to remain competitive in the market.
