(Newser) – Today a New York judge delayed a law requiring Big Apple eateries to list calorie content on menus. Set to kick in today, the law is now slated to take effect Friday—which gives the city time to sort out a suit by New York restaurants, which are seeking yet another stay. Meanwhile, the Village Voice visits a few restaurants to chat up servers and reconsider TGI Friday's' 2,000-calorie ribs.
