Restaurants are reporting one silver lining from Sandy's reign of terror on the East Coast—people have been flocking to restaurants, according to Bloomberg News. Chains such as Boston Market Corp. and Applebee's are expected to see a boost in sales since those North East residents who lost power will be dining out. "There is cabin fever—the same thing happened after Hurricane Irene last year," Stephen Anderson, an analyst at Miller Tabak & Co. told Bloomberg News. Several eateries Long Island have already reported an uptick. A spokesman from Louisville, Ky.-based Texas Roadhouse said several customers visited its East Meadow, L.I., outpost on Tuesday, resulting in long lines. Boston Market representatives noted long lines as well at its Long Island locations as many customers bought family-style meals. While Starbucks closed about 250 New York City stores in the early half of the week, some outposts in Connecticut were so inundated with business that they ran out of food.
