How often people choose to dine out has always been a fairly good indicator of how people feel about the economy and their own financial well-being. It could also mean more people are opting out for a more nutriotious home cooked meal.
In a typical week, how often do you go to a restaurant for dinner – rarely or never, once a week, two or three times a week, or more than three times a week?
