In this episode of Eat My Globe, our host, Simon Majumdar, will look at the history of the restaurant from the ancient times of China and Greece, to how the Thermopolium of Rome used to operate, through the Middle Ages of British taverns, and to how the USA began to develop new ways of serving food, such as “Fast Food” style, “Diners” style, and “Drive In” style. Along the way, he will discuss how the word, “Restaurant,” came to be, how there are now over 500,000 of these “Fast Food” restaurants across the world, and the effect of Covid on how people ate.
