I noticed that more and more people are becoming health conscious.  And I debated with my friends if the restaurant industry is coming to an end?

I personally do not eat out the way I used to.
Still, I enjoy going to a good restaurant once in a while - especially in good company is a treat. I usually pick the healthier option when possible but I don't see myself not wanting to have the restaurant experience completely. 

A lot of people care about the source of their food and want to know what goes into it. Cooking at home is becoming a trend. But at the same time, a lot more healthy eating options are becoming available too. 

I am surprised at how many salad based restaurants are opening everywhere. Famous chains like Chick-fil-a and Mcdonalds are introducing keto options in their menu. 

I think the bad quality restaurants will only be for the people that are too stressed and too busy to care about their health.
I hope and predict that such conditions will not last too long. 

We may have more creative and diverse cuisines - plus more delivery options but I don't think the restaurant business is dying.

    @keni You love those debates with friends. :) I hope the trend with restaurants is toward the healthier end, but ultimately not much will change with "Big Agro" in charge of the food supply. Fast casual where you can get something healthy quickly is my go-to. Think Chipotle but hold the E. coli. I did find a Keto-friendly offering at McDonald's. Two egg whites and two sausage patties, and the coffee isn't Starbucks terrible.

      @brandonwilson - Yes I see a lot of places like Roti and Sweet Greens offering exactly what you describe. I really hope things will change and improve for the better.

      Yes debates with friends is always the best!

    @keni I spent two months in the US last year and I feel like the opposite is true there, it seems like no one knows how to cook anything adn they just always eat out. Like all the times.

      @valentino - :) Yes everything is relative. I was comparing the US now to the US before. Against the rest of the world, I am sure we do not cook at all. But things are changing and improving as science reveals the consequences.
