Starbucks takes wine and beer off evening menu at its regular stores

Starbucks started testing the Evenings program in Seattle in 2010, in an attempt to expand customer traffic in the late afternoons and early evening they sold wine, beer and small food items. They extended this to more than 400 Starbucks stores nationwide. According to this article in the Seattle Times they decided to end the Evening program.

Food bowl mania in 2017

We haven’t seen many examples yet in the Netherlands but according to this article of Fine Dining Lovers is 2017 the year of the food bowls. Well, as we have spotted the first Poké shop in the Netherlands in 2016 and we see a couple of breakfast meals in bowls, we think that we have to wait for a food bowl mania till 2018. Specially because we haven’t heard of the Buddha bowls yet. But hé, we’re definitely able to search for Buddha Bowls on Google and try to make them. It seems that they’re often vegan, healthy, tasteful and artful in colours. Which is trendy in the Netherlands as well.

Apeel turns uneaten food material—like orange peels, stems, leaves, and grape skins—into a precisely blended powder that can be used to create an invisible, edible, incredibly thin barrier on produce.
