Gourmet Gripes

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
