Supplementary notes

The source added the following information on methodology:
"For breakfast in each city that has an annual GDP above $95 billion, students surveyed three chains, six independent restaurants identified via TripAdvisor and three hotel restaurants; for each lunch and dinner, they called six chain and six independent restaurants. For smaller cities, students surveyed two independent restaurants and one hotel restaurant for breakfast and three chain and three independent restaurants for each lunch and dinner. Sample breakfast chains include Denny’s, IHOP and Starbucks; lunch chains include Chili’s, Panera and Bonefish Grill; dinner chains include Fogo de Chao, The Cheesecake Factory and The Capital Grille."
The research was conducted by students of New York University School of Professional Studies.
