Western style restaurants and hotels began to spring up everywhere from 1995 after the city planning department approved the use of many buildings for commercial use. Under strict guidelines and rules set by the government, restaurants and hotels were granted licences and required to maintain high food standards, hygiene, facilities, personnels and salaries in accordance with western standards. By year 2000, there was a culinary explosion and restaurant and hotels franchises from capitalist west was visible everywhere in Bucharest. 
For the tourists, it was a welcomed development to have varieties of restaurants, foods and hotels. For post-communist Romanians, western foods became very popular even though Romanians continued to love their traditional food. Anything from the west is seen as a better quality. The young and adults are very eager to espouse all things western; clothings, cigarettes, foods, architecture, hotels, cars etc. They flock to McDonalds, apparently happy to partake in its junk cuisine regardless of the health risks.
Today, there are plenty of restaurants and cafés to choose in Bucharest, mostly located in city center which is the main tourist area. Some of the popular restaurants and cafés in Bucharest are Gara Lipscani, Cafe Royal, Capriccio Italiano, Caru' Cu Bere, Trattoria del Tatoli , Waterloo, Ma'dam Zoronn, Paparazzi, Brasseir Crown Plaza, La Mama, Cina restaurant, Bistro Atheneu, Casa Vernescu, Burebista, Bradet, Aquarium, Capsa etc.The city is also home to many international fast food chains such as McDonald's, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Pizza Hut, Burger King etc. Most bars have limited food such as pastry and sandwich. 
Romanian restaurant and cafés prefer to locate in the city centers where there are more tourists, transportation, security, convenience and accessibility. They are mostly secluded in spot near the Piata Romana, Piata Victoriei and Piata Unirii. There are no restaurants in the outskirts of the city eve though it is generally safe everywhere in Bucharest. It is common to find people eating outdoors in restaurants in the summer on a beautiful large terrace under the trees. For an average Romanian family, dining in restaurant is reserved for special occasions as its a national custom to cook at home and restaurant is seen as very expensive.
