McDonald’s is getting a makeover, starting with one New York restaurant that now features a sleek, European-inspired look, flat-screen TVs, and free wi-fi. The redesign features employees in all-black uniforms and “Danish Modern furniture,” reports the AP—or, as Daniel Maurer writes in New York, “knockoff mod furniture, laptop outlets, and other trimmings.” He adds, “It’s great that they’re trying to make the McRib experience a little classier, but really, it looks like Swatch had a baby with Ikea, and that is not a good thing."
