Has anyone else noticed that it is rare to get a spoon with your coffee in "nicer" (tablecloth) restaurants?
Just back from brunch at XO on the Hudson in Yonkers, NY. $100 for two for brunch (food was delicious, service was AWFUL at every opportunity) ... there was not a spoon to be seen when coffee was served, not at any table. Couldn't even get a wait-person's attention to ask for a spoon. Guess we were supposed to stir our coffee with the knife? Couldn't use the dessert spoon as we had already finished our desserts and the plates had been cleared (even though the wait-person asked if we wanted coffee with dessert).
Anyone else notice this?
