Restaurants are being remodeled to feature a contemporary look with a streetscape design, bright and fun artwork, interactive food stations, a display bakery with plated desserts, a new bread bar featuring freshly baked bread, and an embellished salad bar. The staff will even be sporting a new look with brand new uniforms.
