What is it with restaurants pushing ice water lately? I was looking at a photo blog about the most famous fine dining restaurant (El Bulli in Spain) and it appeared that all I could find in the photos were glasses of ice water. I've noticed in at least 3 places I've been recently that Servers were more interested in bringing me more water then getting me soda or wine. One French Bistro I had lunch in recently didn't even ask about drinks - just brought us these nice glasses of water. Is water the latest trend in fine dining?
