Chowhounds Don't Bribe!

Mattapoisett in LA | Jul 19, 2008 10:29 AM

I was looking through the Chow tips videos which are mildly amusing and sometimes oddly Informative, when I came across one from a Chow staffer that suggests greasing the palm of the Maitre D in order to get a table at a busy restaurant.

We were really taken aback as this to us is the antithesis of what chowhounds believe. To Quote the manifesto " Chowhounds blaze trails.. while they appreciate ambiance and service, they can't be fooled by flash" To Bribe a Maitre D is to be fooled by the flash, further, my Miss Manners loving partner just finds the whole suggestion tacky.

So before we sent an angry letter, we wanted to know what the consensus was....

Take Care
