Technically yes, but it doesn't sound natural. I'd more likely say "the food in the restaurants," talking about a particular group of restaurants, or restaurants in a particular place, or "restaurant food": "I spent a week in Akron; I didn't care much for the home cooking, but I liked the restaurant food."
That may be a regional matter. In the parts of the United States I have lived in, it is perfectly normal to say "the restaurants' food," "the kids' school," "the trees' leaves," etc. I might very well find myself saying, "I'm not very fond of the restaurants' food, but they both have great wine menus."
The voice is not quite perfect on this sentence, as of June 23, 2018, so I've taken the liberty of re-recording it.
There's not supposed to be any staccato in the sentence, but it sounds absolutely stilted when the TTS says it.

Thanks for listening. Ha en bra dag! :)
I am confused. Some questions that you need to answer in English you use an apostrophe. Ex: as used in this question "We like the restaurant's food." has an apostrophe in the word restaurant, because in the English language we use apostrophes to show onership Ex: cat's , dog's , or Sailor Moon's. Or when we have two words and make then into one word Ex: Don
t , wont, and hasn`t. We put the apostrophe where the middle letter from the second word is. So in not we put it where the "o" is. But we don't use an apostrophe is there is one or more of somthing ex: Cats,dogs,unicorns,lights,or posters."My cat is eating my dogs food."SHOULD have an apostrophe after the "g" in "dogs" so the correct way to write that sentence is: "My cat is eating my dog's food." The apostrophe after the "t" in "restaurant's is corrct. But I have noticed some grammar issues in this lesson with apostrophes. Thanks for reading!!
