Not so Fine Dining


Like most of us from time to time, I enjoy a nice dinner in a fine dining establishment, however, I get extremely perturbed when the restaurant staff have an arrogance about them and try to belittle me. There have been a few occasions when this has happened, and I find dealing with the situation to be quite challenging.


I recall a new restaurant which opened near Yonge and Eglinton, in Toronto which I went to, with some friends for a new, dining experience. The service was good until I ordered my steak and asked to have it well done. The waiter returned a few moments later, only to explain that the chef does not `do` the steaks well done. I was confused by the statement and must have had a puzzled look on my face because he repeated himself.
