Dishing out the latest and greatest in food news
The Daily Dish - May 31, 2016

Brian Sheehan dishes on what's hot and trending in the world of all things food and drink for Tuesday, May 31, 2016.

Today's first course?

Feeling hungry? How about a personalized restaurant recommendation from a bot that knows exactly what you want? It sounds futuristic, but Foursquare is releasing an app called Marsbot that learns what you like to eat and when you like to eat, and sends you recommendations based on that. It’s like OpenTable meets a particularly smart Siri. Unfortunately, Marsbot is still in the testing stages so we won’t be able to find that perfect taco spot without lifting a finger for a little while longer.
Olive Garden is kicking off the summer season with new menu offerings and a summer-long celebration bringing together its fans from across the country. New to the menu are Meatball Deep Dish Spaghetti Pie, Chicken Alfredo Deep Dish Spaghetti Pie, and Spaghetti Rosso with Chicken & Bacon. The Spaghetti Pies are made with spaghetti, seven cheeses, and Italian bacon, all baked in a flaky crust. Olive Garden is kicking off a Never Ending Family Table summer celebration in New York City, in which guests in different cities will have the opportunity to gather and try out the new offerings.
Germany’s Autobahn is famed for its lack of speed limits, but traffic was recently brought to a standstill by a massive beer spill across all three lanes of the motorway. Thousands of bottles of beer smashed across the highway. Nobody was injured, but the cleanup took hours and traffic was stopped across all three lanes for the duration.
That’s todays Daily Dish, thanks for watching. Stop back tomorrow for another helping.
