First, thanks for joining FohBoh and please invite others that may add value and find value. I would appreciate that.
Regarding NDA's and consultants in the restaurant industry. Any consultant in any industry should be used to signing non disclosures by now. Consultants are service providers and as such, are generally not competitive so it shouldn't be a problem. Having said that, many consultants, including myself, balance principal activities (investment) with agency business (consulting) so signing NDA's for me and my firm is sometimes problematic.
You are correct, in tech it's almost automatic because in many cases there is IP to protect. In the restaurant industry, show me an original idea and the next day there are 10 competitors. So the long answer is ask and try to get the NDA signed so there is no issue. But the reality is, that in the restaurant industry, it's just not as common.
Where I would insist on an NDA/non-circumvent agreement is with key employees. if you need a form, let me know.

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.
Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.
At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?
Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.
