Not the information one expects to find these days about food, but very interesting.

I always request to be seated in a booth when I am dining alone or with family/friends. Booths are generally around the perimeter of the room, often near a window. I haven't noticed loud music at any of the restaurants I have eaten at. Also, one thing that wasn't listed in the article: Most restaurants will give you a senior discount if you ask for it. Often, they do not promote it.

I don't eat at fast food restaurants.

Did I miss something, 5 has nothing to do with restaurants? Maybe just order 2 starters if the meals are too big, and desserts are not required every time you go

No mention of hygiene secrets behind closed doors in the kitchen I note.

Perhaps better not to know in many cases...

Thanks for this info - not sure I agree with all of it, but certainly worth looking out for!

Interesting. For the most part I do make my own food at home from scratch but an interesting article.
