The Father's Office School of Etiquette or Why do I bother?

epop | Mar 19, 2009 10:38 PM

After a night of omakase a taste for surf led us to Father's Office, after a friend begged me to try it again, since they burned my burger the last time I went.

Here's the dialogue that offended (the other is the unkind waitress):

I'm allergic to blue cheese. Can you keep it off the burger?


But I'm allergic to it.

Take it off. There isn't much anyway. (THERE WAS!)

I think it will still bother me even if I take it off.

Then order something else.

Part 2:

Can you put a pickle on the side?

No way.


If you want a pickle go to Pavillion's.

I smile. She doesn't.


The burger was better this time. I felt like it had changed and shrunk. Is it the same french bread as a year ago? I remember more of a taste of basil and less pepper. Plus much less sweet barbecue sauce. Seems odd that they won't let us change anything but that the burger is quite different than before.

That's the drama.
