Had dinner at a local restaurant which is owned by a well- known chef. Sat at the bar. When I ordered a glass of chardonnay, the bar tender opened a bar refrigerator, which happened to be right in front of me, and took our a small glass carafe of white wine and served it to me.
This restaurant puts all orders for a glass of wine in a small glass carafe and pours it from there. The carafe is wide open at the top. I was astonished. I asked the bartender how long the wne had been sitting in the open carafe in the refrigerator- she said only about 20 min- that it was the leftover from an opened bottle and they put it in the carafe "for convenience." I said it was ok but she was very nice and took it away and poured my wine from a bottle.
What do you think??
