The Red Spot is a restaurant franchise located only on Jupiter's floating cities. It's named after Jupiter's once famous Great Red Spot.
The Red Spot is one of the most successful restaurants in the FUSS due to its scarcity and promise to the customers to fly underneath the Great Red Spot. As the FUSS expanded, so did the menu. The restaurants are all located on floating cities which are either near the old site of the spot, or ones that are near massive storms themselves.
The house special varies from week to week, but for the most part the special is some sort of terrestrial or extraterrestrial seafood of some sort. The Red Spot is also one of the last remaining restaurants which serve ancient Earth fast food meals and drinks.
All of the locations are placed near the edge of the floating cities in which they set up a restaurant with a grande view of Jupiter's massive cloudy landscapes. Despite the allure of viewing the Great Red Spot from afar or within, the restaurant has been able to hold its own with the quality of its food alone. The current entry fee is 13 C-Units.
The Red Spot Menu is varied from human to alien foods.

With rising tourism rates in the Jovian System as well as the terraforming of the Galilean moons, many enterprising entrepreneurs tried to cash in on the growing popularity of the gas giant and its moons. One man was named Harold Forde. He came from a family which owned TerraFoods, a food dispensary company back on Earth and wanted to expand his company, so when a restaurant on Zeus closed, he purchased the location and opened his first Red Spot on March 12, 3320, on his 40th birthday.
It only took a few years before the popularity of the restaurant to take off. Soon Forde had bought a larger restaurant location on the other side of the city and had opened up his second store. By the time Forde retired at 120, he had eight restaurants open in many of the major floating cities on Jupiter.
In 3561 The Red Spot company began construction on its own floating city, named Jove City. Not only did they open many different franchise locations within the city, but the city held The Red Spot's headquarters as well as the largest museum on Jupiter's history as well as that of The Red Spot.
Currently there are over 70,000 locations spread across the planet's floating cities, with its first location still open.
