To make it more desirable in its upscale neighborhood,McDonald's last week opened a prototype restaurant inAtlanta's Buckhead neighborhood fully equipped with aglass-enclosed business center.

The first of its kind in the fast-food industry, the restaurantboasts a wrought-iron-lined staircase leading to mezzanine-levelseating, where there's free access to a telephone, fax machineand Internet-connected computer. The business center boasts three20-inch televisions perpetually tuned to CNN and the MoneyChannel.

The antique office furnishings include a bookcase stocked withbusiness and financial journals as well as stock market referencebooks. The posh eating area is also furnished with a mock fireplaceand mantle topped with an antique mirror, clock and candlesticks.The Queen Anne chair adds the finishing touch. A mural featuringMcDonaldland characters and scenes from downtown Atlanta embellishthe main wall.
