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 each smaller city, students surveyed two independent restaurants and one hotel restaurant for breakfast and three chain and three independent restaurants for each lunch and dinner. U.S. breakfast is based on an egg entree (omelet, benedict, etc.) with fruit and coffee or juice. Sample breakfast chains include Denny's, IHOP and Starbucks. Lunch is an entree-style salad or sandwich, pizza, burrito or wrap with fruit; fries or chips; and nonalcoholic beverage. Dinner is a steak, pasta or raw or cooked fish entree; small salad; cheese tray or dessert; and glass of wine. Sample lunch chains include Chili's, Panera and Bonefish Grill. Sample dinner chains include Fogo de Chao, The Cheesecake Factory & The Capital Grille."
The research was conducted by students of New York University School of Professional Studies.
