Roots in Morristown and the instructions from the waiter

coldbeer | Apr 3, 2014 06:56 AM

Roots in Morristown had been consistently good for awhile, certainly better than the one in Summit, but finally got a clunker of a steak the other night. That's OK, you can't bat 1.000, but for the first time ever, after the steaks were delivered, the waiter said "now if I may ask you to cut into your steak and see if it is cooked to your liking". I told him to get lost. Maybe they have a problem with people returning their steaks due to the "cool red center", but if I ask for medium rare, a premium steakhouse should be able to get that done without a waiter demanding a forensic dissection.
