Eatery

I know new words come along all the time and languages evolve but Eatery..... really?!

Wtf was wrong with restaurant or cafe?!

When I look up the origins it says it was first used in 1901 but I've only heard it in the past few years.

Not a new word but in terms of food... they would nearly slap the word "organic" on a soiled bag of nappies these days and charge you an extra few Bob for the organic matter inside.
