Though it was hard to choose from the many grievances I’ve
received this past week – apparently there are quite a few unhappy diners in NYC – this beef’s particularly close to my heart:
I can’t stand when a restaurant’s host lies about how long the wait is. I don’t know how many times a week I have to go through this. The worst was when I went to Norma’s and they quoted me thirty minutes. I must’ve asked ten times and they ended up seating us almost two hours later. I would’ve left, but I was starving and couldn’t bear the thought of going to another restaurant and having to wait all over again. But for god’s sake, just call a spade a spade. If it’s going to be thirty minutes, tell me thirty minutes! If you don’t know, just say that. At least, that way I could just suck it up or eat somewhere else! — Alison
