Last night we watched as two nearby tables stretched the bounds of hospitality. At one, an imperious American woman (picture her being played by Maggie Smith) batted her eyes
at the English language challenged waiter and gushed, "All of this sounds just
wonderful and I'm sure that it is, but I don't eat any meat, poultry or fish. Just tell your
chef I know that whatever he decides to cook for me will be excellent." Oooookay. And
not 15 minutes later a woman from a European country sat down, looked at the menu and told the waiter, pointing at the first three courses, "I don't like, I don't like and I don't like. Bring something else."
This restaurant is brand new and tiny. 24 seats and two people in the kitchen, 1 in FOH. Both diners were beautifully accommodated.
DH commented, "Children have to be told to do their homework. Adults shouldn't need to be told. "
