Room service is going Jurassic.

It’s being discontinued at the city’s largest hotel, the New York Hilton Midtown in August, taking the jobs of 55 workers with it.

hiltonThe 2,000-room Hilton plans to replace it with a cafeteria-style, grab-and-go restaurant.

Experts say this will become the industry norm soon enough, because room service is too expensive and it takes too long to have the food delivered.
