Barbequed chicken and ribs and grilled steak and seafood figure prominently on Dave & Buster’s menu. Settembre developed a signature Black Jack sweet BBQ sauce spiked with Jack Daniel’s for several of the entrees, as well as this hot-sweet honey-based recipe spiced with chipotles. Slather the sauce on to enhance beef, pork, poultry or even salmon.

Ingredients

1 can (7 oz. ) chipotles in adobo sauce
1 can (6 oz.) frozen limeade concentrate, thawed
1/3 tsp. cayenne pepper
3/4 tsp. onion salt
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1 qt. mayonnaise
3/4 cup clover honey
1/2 cup yellow mustard
1/3 cup vegetable oil

Steps

  1. In blender, combine chipotles in adobo sauce, limeade, cayenne pepper, onion salt and cider vinegar; blend until peppers are smooth and completely pureed. Set aside.
  2. Place the mayonnaise, honey, mustard and vegetable oil into a mixing bowl; mix well with a wire whisk until smooth and thoroughly incorporated.
  3. Pour contents of blender into mayonnaise-honey mixture in mixing bowl. With wire whisk, mix together until well blended. (Do not mix the two mixtures in the blender or sauce/glaze will be too thin.)
  4. Refrigerate sauce and use within 1 week.

Automation has opened up in recent years as foodservice operators across the country grapple with labor shortages. Robots deliver food trays to patients in hospitals, and they make sushi on college campuses. For some operators, they’re worthwhile to reduce strain on human employees and increase productivity.

Robots roamed the hallways when the University of California San Francisco Medical Center’s new Mission Bay campus opened last year. Though these robots have nicknames like Wall-E and Tuggie McFresh, they’re not a novelty. They’re a solution to a problem that administrators...

sandwich sub

At our corporate operation in the Kohl’s headquarters, two kinds of sandwiches are available daily—an artisan version and a more straightforward sub. While planning out a business model for the space, Kohl’s wanted something that was quality driven, but very sensitive to pricing for associates. Diners are comfortable spending about $6 to $7 for lunch.

With a prime location in Los Angeles, one of the nation’s foodie capitols, the University of Southern California has plenty of dining competition. So when Kris Klinger, assistant vice president of retail operations, discovered that students were heading off campus for sushi and noodle bowls, he knew it was time to take action. The construction of Fertitta Hall, part of the university’s Marshall School of Business, provided the opportunity.

Klinger and Gary Marschall, associate director of USC auxiliary services in hospitality, shared photos of both the new Fertitta Cafe and a...
