can you guess which restaurant this is?

okay, once again exploring news items online while watching the Ottawa / Buffalo game (currently 4 - 3 for Ottawa), and I found something surprising.



These pictures show the remodeling of a restaurant that is trying to update it's look.









Can you guess which one???

    LOL no kidding! apparently their marketing people think consumers are dumb enough to believe that if the environment is classy - so is the food.

    I wonder if they'll still serve their food in paper bags ;)

    Not only can I tell you what restaurant this is - Ledawit was right (of course), but this particular Mickey D's is, I believe, located in your future city!

    And hey! Don't knock Mickey D's! :-) I worked there for YEARS and can personally guarantee NO ONE ever spit in the food or "modified" the secret sauce on my watch. He he.

    on a side note - did you that in Germany you can buy beer at McDonald's? In New Orleans there is (used to be??? beats me after Katrina) a McDonald's that is listed as a five-star restaurant. Not only do they serve steak, lobster, and other fine-dining entrees, but reservations are required and a professional dress code is mandatory.

    This information brought to you from the useless trivia stored within Rob's mind.

    I knew it! I once got a postcard from my cousin who stopped in NY on her way home to England (from visiting Canada) and it was of an upscale McDonald's! (If I can find it i'll post a picture of it) It had marble tables, vases with fresh flowers, a grand piano.. it was just ridiculous! I'll get a 6pc. chicken nugget, just to say I've been there; done that! hehe

    That's crazy. I would not have guessed McDonalds.
    Then again they've really been trying to reinvent themselves for a while.
