In this video from Thursday's MarketFoolery podcast, host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analysts Jason Moser and David Hanson take a deep Foolish dive into the biggest stories from the market today.
Darden Restaurants (NYSE:DRI) sold off today on earnings news, and also announced it would be spinning off its Red Lobster business as the weakest performer among the restaurants under the Darden umbrella. Chipotle (NYSE:CMG) is still full steam ahead, and has announced that it will be getting into the pizza business with its first location of Pizzeria Locale, to open in Denver. Will this be a winning move for Chipotle, and are "fast casual" restaurants like Chipotle destined to drive traditional casual dining companies, like Darden Restaurants, out of business? In this segment, the guys discuss the future of Chipotle, Darden, and the restaurant industry as a whole.
