MacDonalds, Panera Bread, Wegmans...whatever. Must we always be forced into the same sanitized, overpriced sameness? It's like we're being put into a cookie stamp and spit out. Granted these places are always predictable and clean, but they have nothing interesting or different to offer anyone - nothing unique that says anything about our community at all. You can keep your Panera Bread...I'll take the time to go down to go elsewhere; perhaps downtown where you're much more likely to support businesses whose owners or management actually live here. Can't imagine how anybody truly thinks a MacGriddle sandwich is actually good. That's the most disgusted excuse for food I can think of...

I agree with Karl, It would be great to see something new and different and not another chain restaurant!!! Bel Air is filled with chains, enough already!
