Barnes & Noble already has Starbucks cafes in most of its bookstores, but the new restaurants will feature breakfast, lunch and dinner menus, and a server will take your order.

The first store will open in Eastchester, New York, in October. The three other stores will be in Edina, Minnesota; Folsom, California; and Loudoun County, Virginia, Fortune reported.

The head of the project said it was about creating "a better bookstore" that drives traffic to the store and keeps people there longer.

The company has faced slumping sales recently thanks to people turning to online retailers, like Amazon, to buy books. Its sales fell .8 percent last quarter.

The company's Nook devices and e-book business aren't performing well either. Nook's market share is at 9 percent after it held 27 percent in 2011.

Authorities raid Gladys Knight's Chicken and Waffles restaurants

The Georgia Department of Revenue has raided Gladys Knight’s Chicken and Waffles restaurants in the Atlanta area, WSB reported.

Gladys Knight’s son, Shanga Hankerson, who runs the operation, is at the center of an investigation involving $1 million in stolen money, authorities said.

Knight is not involved in the investigation.

It was reported in February that one of the Atlanta locations of the resturant failed a Feb. 8 health inspection, getting a failing grade of 56.

Knight told WSB-TV in February that customers had nothing to worry about.

"Our biggest thing was a freezer door that was off, but we weren't using the freezer," Knight said "The freezer was dead. They cited us because no door; I get that."

Hankerson told WSB that every violation that led to the failing grade had been fixed.

When a Fulton County health inspector returned to re-inspect the restaurant, it recieved an A grade of 90.

WSB spoke Tuesday to James Boyd, whi said he was a consultant to the chain "trying to help stabilize the business."

"I was made aware of the tax situation," Boyd said. "It’s our intent to get the business back open. The business will go on. I want the public to know both sides."

The restaurants are currently closed.

Man leaves $1,000 tip, returns next day to get it back

It seemed too good to be true for Skye Seumptewa when she opened the ticket book left by her customer and more than $1,000 was in there. She knew something was up, and that suspicion was confirmed when her former customer returned the next day to get his money back.

KUSA reported the man was eating at Thailicious, an Edgewater, Colorado, restaurant, on Monday night and sat at the bar, ordering a few glasses of wine with a meal before paying for his check. According to Seumptewa, he settled the bill and left, which is when she noticed the bounty of bills left inside.

"We thought he was just some super-loaded dude who wanted to make our night,” she told KUSA. 

Bee Anantatho, one of the restaurant's owners, said he and the workers were excited, but also a little skeptical. "(The server) was so excited about it. He said he's heard of the stories like this, but not with this much money. Like $400. This was something huge. I said maybe we should wait because that's too much money. Let's wait to see if he comes back or not."

The customer returned and said he was a little drunk when he left the original tip. "He came in and asked for the money back," Anantatho added. "He thought he lost it. He said he was a little drunk, and I think he believed that he counted 20 bills of money so I think that he believed that it was all singles."

The man left them with a $40 tip instead, the Denver Post reported.

Anantatho, who co-owns the restaurant with his wife, Surachai Surabotsopon, said they decided to give the money back for karma.

"Many people have said we have a right to keep the money, since it was already in the checkbook," he said. "I believe in karma, so if it's not ours, then we should give it back. He's still welcome."

British restaurant owner gets 6 years for killing man with curry

An owner of an Indian restaurant in North Yorkshire, England, was sentenced to six years in prison after he served a curry dish containing peanuts to a customer with an allergy, resulting in his death.

Mohammaed Zaman was sentenced Monday after being found guilty of manslaughter by gross negligence among other food-safety offenses, The New York Times reported. The incident happened in January 2014 when Paul Wilson, 38, ordered chicken tikka masala from Zaman’s restaurant, Indian Garden, and specified he couldn’t have any nuts in his order.

Wilson had visited the restaurant previously and was given a container with "no nuts" written on top of it, the Times added.

He was found by a roommate dead after going into anaphylactic shock, prosecutors said.

According to authorities, Zaman cut corners by replacing almond powder in his recipes with a cheaper mix of groundnuts and hired undocumented workers to put together his curry dishes. There was an incident with another customer with a nut allergy three weeks before Wilson’s death.

"Time and again he ignored the danger and did not protect his customers," Richard Wright, told a jury at Teesside Crown Court, according to the Times.

Zaman had about $434,000 in debt, which led to his cutting corners, the Times reported. He also had a tendency to not be at the restaurant, allowing his employees to run the operations, and was not there when the curry was served to Wilson.

"Paul Wilson was in the prime of his life," Judge Simon Bourne-Arton told Zaman, according to the Yorkshire Post. "He, like you, worked in the catering trade. He, unlike you, was a careful man."
