  • Noise In Restaurants Promotes Obesity

    ​Please read the following blog:

    http://tomfoodery.blogspot.com/2012/06/goddam-noisy-restaurants.html

    I endorse everything Tom wrote. I have carried a sound meter into American and European restaurants and notice a big difference. American restaurants with entrees under $30 are all, extremely (illegally) NOISY.

    The restaurant owners encourage the noise, as Tom wrote, because in a loud environment, people order more food, eat faster and clear out sooner, opening up the table for the next customer. They order more food because they are stressed and befogged by the noise. Restaurant owners make more money, and in the U.S., money is the king of all decisions.

    But you can’t blame the restaurant owners exclusively. A large part of the problem is the behavior of individual Americans. When noise levels rise, European diners lean forward to talk, keeping the speech volume the same or lower. Americans raise the volume of their voice, even shouting. The sum of that American behavior–all the diners shouting at the same time–is the chief cause of noise in restaurants.
