Dining in Style

If you haven't been to the McDonalds in the Fine Arts Building, I recommend you check it out sometime. Not so much for the food (though the new McDonalds is a lot better than the old McDonalds), but for the interesting interior details.

The ceiling and wall details feel more like they belong to an old church than to a fast food joint. The sterile architecture of the McDonalds tile floor seems very out of place set against everything that rises above it.

A juxtaposition to this out of place feeling would be the Subway on the ground floor of the Bradbury building. There the eatery just seems to fit. Here -- well, not so much.
