Washington, D.C., restaurant Michel Richard Citronelle replaced its full-service breakfast in the Latham Hotel with M Express, a small shop where guests and passersby can quickly grab cold cereals, bagels and omelets. General Manager Jean-Jacques Retourne says people in Washington simply don't have time to sit down for breakfast anymore. "We’re almost too plugged in.  They don’t want to miss anything," he said. "There’s less personal time. It’s sad in a way. We’re always running, running, running."
