2013_4_EastchesterQL.jpgThe town of Eastchester, NY?just a 20-minute drive north of the Bronx?has banned all "fast casual" restaurants. The town had previously banned fast food, but now will not allow any chain with more than 15 locations to open there. Says town supervisor Anthony Colavita, in a line straight out of Parks & Rec: "You can go get your sandwich in Larchmont. We aren't going to cheapen the town." [Eater National]
