Every week, Restaurant SmartBrief editors scour the Internet for the breaking news and best-practices stories that restaurant owners and managers need to make their businesses smarter. However, every week, hundreds of fascinating food, beverage and restaurant stories don’t make the cut. Here are a few of my favorite stories from the past week that didn’t make the newsletter:
- Who makes the best mint julep? The Courier-Journal covers the Four Roses Annual Rose Julep Contest.
- Top 10 food TV shows, thanks to the Chicago Tribune.
- The world of food bloggers, according to ELLE.
- The great debate: does OpenTable help restaurants? Fast Company explores the issue.
