Word on the street is that Google is planning to open a big old office in Cambridge. This might initally seem to be of less than general interest to Hub foodies, but check out the last item on the top ten reasons to work at Google: “There is such a thing as a free lunch after all. In fact we have them every day: healthy, yummy, and made with love.” “So what?”, you might think. “Plenty of companies have cafeterias.” True enough. But how many companies offer their employees bacon cheeseburgers served on a bun of Krispy Kreme donuts? Google does. In late 2006, the company made headlines after unveiling the cafeteria of their New York office, which includes amenities such as a ceviche bar and “untold hillsides” of fresh fruit, all completely gratis for employees. What does this mean for Bostonians with a taste for the finer things at lunchtime? Um, dudes, it’s probably time to start sucking up to your tech-friendly friends. Now.
