Here the world goes again, blaming millennials for everything that's wrong with it: Romano's Macaroni Grill has shuttered 37 of its 116 locations and filed for bankruptcy, and its top execs are pointing fingers at twenty-somethings. In a statement, the company's acting CEO said "a trend among younger consumers to spend their disposable income at non-chain 'experience-driven' restaurants" was a big cause in the downfall.

At the point of filing, Macaroni Grill was $23 million in debt. And to add insult to injury, many company landlords are suing the restaurant over the closures. Sales had been declining for years, but you might not have guessed it. In Nation's Restaurant News's 2016 Consumer Picks survey, the restaurant ranked highest for Italian and pizza joints — even above the almighty Olive Garden chains including Buca di Beppo and Carrabba's Italian Grill.
There's no telling if or when the rest of the company-owned or franchised locations might close, but if you've got a sudden hankering for pasta served by a singing waiter, you might want to book a reservation now.
