New York Law about posting calories in chain restaurants
Haven't seen a thread on this yet:
It's an article describing the new law in NY which requires chains (not just fast food places) to create menus with calories listed in the same font as the price.
Not really sure I like the law at all. I'd love it if these (and all) restaurants had this information available, but I don't think it needs to be mandated.
The article does have some interesting counts on calories in some foods, like the salad with some sort of nut encrusted chicken that has more calories (1300!) than the burger and fries (1200) at some joint. There's a lot of @#$ food out there.
