The Daily Dish: October 23, 2015
Welcome to The Daily Meal’s Daily Dish, where we highlight what’s hot and trending in the world of all things food and drink.
Today’s first course?
Wolfgang Puck, the Austrian-born celebrity chef behind dozens of fine dining restaurants, will open his first-ever restaurant in New York City in July, 2016. Puck announced he will bring his steakhouse concept, CUT by Wolfgang Puck, to the Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown.
Domino’s changed the pizza delivery game by letting customers order by tweeting a pizza emoji. Now, they have created vehicle dedicated to delivering better pizzas. It’s called the DXP, which stands for Delivery ExPert, and it’s a modified Chevy Spark with seating just the driver. It was designed to store 80 pizzas! There’s also a warming oven and a “puddle light” to project the Domino’s logo on the ground. Domino’s will send 100 test vehicles to 25 markets in cities including Boston, Dallas, Detroit, Houston, New Orleans, and Seattle.
Okay, you’ll never believe this one…While driving on Interstate-94, a Minnesota woman was pulled over — for taking a sip of…COFFEE. Lindsey Krieger, who was on her way to work, said she was “dumbfounded,” and thought the cop was joking, explaining she “didn’t even have enough time to merge up to the right speed limit.” After attempting to get Krieger to admit her wrongdoing, the officer explained, “it’s against the law to drink coffee while you’re driving.” Krieger was given a warning for the coffee, and a ticket for the seatbelt she unclicked when pulled over. It all sounds like one strange brew.
And that’s today's Daily Dish. Thanks for watching. Stop by tomorrow for another helping.
