EAT (1)

I know it’s a relatively small thing in the great scheme of things with a mass of more important and contentious public issues, but I felt a great twinge of sadness and nostalgia when I read about the closure of EAT, one of several chains of sandwich shops which opened in the 1980s and 1990s and brought good quality and affordable sandwiches to lunchtime eating. EAT was always one of the best (and I always liked its graphics), so much so that I remember investigating whether they might open a franchise in the basement of the renovated NPG. I assume that many other restaurant chains are at risk of going under, but this doesn’t make it any the less dispiriting.
