Heartbeat Horror

Amy | Apr 27, 2000 07:52 PM

My boss and a co-worker took a client to Heartbeat for lunch today. The co-worker ordered Tuna on "organic greens" which as she put it was garnished by two LIVE water bugs.She did not want to make a scene since this restaurant is a favorite of the client- but she alerted the staff. She squashed the bugs and her meal was replaced by another dish. No apology just the statement that this happens with organic greens. The bill came to $230 for the three of them. OK- no one disputes that bugs live in NY, but not to have even an offer of coffee or a comped meal. Only in NY
