Has new California calories-info restaurant law, or the N.Y.C. law, been of use to you?

This is just in the news out here in California, since the law took effect July 1.

Weighing California's restaurant calorie-listing law
http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/boost...

Requires: "... restaurants in California with 20 or more locations to provide brochures with nutritional information by July 1, 2009..."

The New York City law:
Fed court upholds New York City's calorie-posting rule
http://www.ama-assn.org/amednews/2009...

"...requires chain restaurants with 15 or more establishments nationally to prominently display calorie content..."

For instance, out here we have California Pizza Kitchen, and while I don't know if they did this before I know they at least haven't done it a long time. Their calories counts, shown at this link, also appear on their menu. (At least the items I looked through on the menu.
