When you dine out, you might think about the ingredients that go into your food, but you probably don’t think about all the numbers that make your meal happen. Restaurants are filled with interesting figures that might not be apparent when you bite into an enticing entrée or take a sip of a signature cocktail, but they’re all around you.
This week we take a jaunt over to NYC transplant P.J. Clarke’s, which is decorated with everything from pictures of presidents to quotes about drinking and relics once owned by Walt Disney.
Age of the original P.J. Clarke’s in New York City: 128 years old
P.J. Clarke’s locations: Six, including outlets in Las Vegas and Sao Paulo, Brazil
