‘The Great Recession’: How DC area restaurants are impacted.

The state of our economy has been dubbed by many as ‘The Great Recession.’ As the DC Restaurant Examiner, I have been tasked to write several feature articles about how DC area restaurants have been impacted from the economic downturn. I thought that this was an excellent medium to reach out to you, the DC diners, and ask you how you think the DC restaurant industry has been affected.

If you are a restaurant owner, work in a restaurant, or feel that you’re dining out habits have changed due to the economy, Please feel free to email me at diningindc@gmail.com
I’m looking for some information and ideas for my next feature articles.

Here are some examples of questions:

  • What local restaurants have had to close due to the recession?
  • What compromises/sacrifices are local restaurants making to stay in business?
  • What are some local cheap eats?
  • Which restaurants are worth the splurge despite the economy?
  • How has the recession affected local chain restaurants, small eateries, ritzy bistros and casual dining restaurants differently?
  • How are local franchise owners being affected?
  • Is the local restaurant industry suffering from the recession? Is it benefiting?
  • Are more people looking for jobs at local restaurants?
  • Are local restaurant jobs becoming more competitive?
  • Are local people starting to tip less?
  • Which local restaurant jobs provide the best stable income?
  • Which restaurants are recession-proof?
  • Are local restaurants increasing their prices? or offering new deals?
