I heard this quote on a goofy show back in August of 2005 and it’s stuck with me since. It reminds me that regardless of how much effort a chef or cook puts into a meal, it will never trump the diner sharing that meal surrounded by people they love. And in turn, expecting a restaurant to make your day filled with assholes any better will leave you severely disappointed.
I have been reminded of this again and again over the last week as I’ve met my new tramily over many meals and drinks. Honestly the food hasn’t been amazing, luckily the company has been!
