Dodging NYC's menu-calorie law?



The California-based Houston's restaurant chain says it doesn't have to comply with New York City's law requiring chain eateries to label items with calorie counts because the menus and food offerings at its local outlets vary slightly from each other. The city says it's a dodge and that the menus are "substantially similar", and has imposed fines whose validity may be determined at an upcoming administrative hearing. [NY Daily News]
