MenuStat, a website from the New York City Department of Health, debuted this week and lets you search items from chain restaurants to see the nutritional information. I’m curious how often people eat from these chain restaurants. I haven’t eaten at any of these in a long time. I went to IHOP once last year. I try to avoid chains and mostly eat at privately owned or mom and pops. In New York City, there are so many privately owned restaurants that it is rare that one would eat at a chain. They exist, mostly around Times Square, but are not popular. However, I’m sure most of the average New York restaurants use the same ingredients as the chains. It’s a great resource for meal planning if you eat at these restaurants, though.
