Moreover all levels of quality are also on the market. You will find eateries, fast foods, diners, food courts, family restaurants, pubs and obviously fine dining establishments with very high quality food and price tags to match.
The general opening hours are from 11.00 am to late in the evening. Americans start to have their dinner from 5.00 pm, sometimes you will even find restaurants that offer “Early Bird Specials” for those eating before 6.00pm. Usually restaurants do not close between lunch and dinner. You will find easily eateries and family restaurants open whole day.
Reservations are not required, except for groups, in casual dining facilities. They are recommended, however, for the more trendy and fine dining restaurants, especially on the weekends.
