There were about 4 other tables occupied, and as you know, it's a tiny place. We were seated, the busboy opened our wine, and the waiter/owner/maitr'd told us the specials.
The w/o/m person then sat down at the front table, and started to shmooze with the young guys who were sitting there. They sang an Italian song, discussed investments, and chatted about life. But no one took our order. Or looked in our direction. Or looked inclined to look in our direction (even though we were about 2 feet away)
We finally corked our wine and got up and left. No one said anything. Ended up across the street at another restaurant
Did we miss anything?
