Last week I went to Sapa. And even though there were plenty of open 4-tops, the hostess tried to seat my next to the big a$$ kitchen doors. Of course I asked to be moved and she readily agreed. However, it started the dinner off wrong for me (and there ended up being many things wrong with the dinner). BTW....most of the 4-tops remained unoccupied for the rest of the night,
My question is this: Why do they do this? Do I look like someone who would accept a sub-standard seat (I am SO not someone to try it with)? For those of you in the know, how does this work?
