Military Times reports that “lunchtime options at the Pentagon are about to change, drastically.” 

“Celebrity chef Robert Irvine, host of the popular Food Network program ‘Restaurant: Impossible,’ is days away from opening his ‘Fresh Kitchen’ inside the U.S. military’s massive headquarters complex in Arlington, Virginia. And it may be just the start of the food and fitness expert’s effort to reshape how American troops eat wherever they are stationed or deployed.”

“Irvine’s restaurant, located in the Pentagon’s main concourse, will stand out among the building’s other food options, which include fast-food chains like McDonald’s, Burger King and Popeye’s Chicken.”
