Southern California Restaurant News...

...with some Utah news thrown in.

In-N-Out Burger has opened its first restaurant in Utah. In-N-Out has always been very particular about not opening restaurants too far away from its California supply facilities, so that the company can guarantee the freshness of the food. Thus, the fact they've opened a Utah store is interesting news. Will In-N-Out continue spreading to other states?

(Hat tip: L.A. Biz Observed.)

In other Southern California food news, tomorrow El Cholo is opening its first "quick casual" restaurant, Cafe Maiz, in Mission Viejo.

And in the "you've got to be kidding" department, Bon Appetit, a company which manages hundreds of university dining halls, is rolling out a low carbon menu. That's carbon, not carbs. Burgers are verboten when the menu is in effect, as cows are supposedly worse for the environment.

I'm sorry to say that this plan is being inflicted on the restaurant at my alma mater, the University of Redlands, along with many other colleges.

Heh. In the hallowed halls of academia, silliness reigns. I really hope some sharply humored students get their In & Out Double Doubles and most publicly down them in the Bon Appetit cafeterias!
