Heads Up: Restaurants Under Fire

The food police at Consumers Union are deputizing their 5 million Consumer Reports magazine subscribers, asking for their critical comments on chain restaurants. The magazine plans to run an upcoming report on things “that detract from your dining experience.”

To get a flavor for where these nannies are heading, yesterday the group advised that when eating fast food, forgo the sauces and toppings, forget fried foods, drink whole juices instead of soft drinks or milk shakes, and eat a salad instead of an apple pie for dessert.
