No, not like cheese you eat. I’m talking about walls covered in faux memorabilia, two-bit jingles and dark green vests covered in flair. If you’ve ever looked up from your creamy spinach dip at Applebee’s and wondered why there was a beat-up french horn hanging from the door jam, you have been a victim of restaurant cheese.
Well now, T.G.I. Friday’s, an age-old perpetrator of restaurant cheese, has decided to abandon its hokey image in favor of a more modern one, progressively rolling out a series of new restaurant changes with a cleaner, more sophisticated look. “We’re getting rid of the cheese,” boasts their new campaign, suggesting the loud decor on their walls is something to be shed. Does restaurant cheese matter to you? Do you care if there are pictures of Marilyn Monroe and toy firetrucks on the walls? Vote below and explain your answers in the comments.
