"To be honest, back then, it was more about meeting a certain type of woman at these kind of restaurants--it was about free love, and it was a cool time, and the women didn't wear bras! And that was as big an appeal as the food was. You went to meet hippie girls." (Richard Melman, founder of Lettuce Entertain You, on the first generation of health food restaurants in Chicago back in the 60s and 70s. As quoted by the Chicago Tribune's Christopher Borrelli.)
