They say one remembers the service rather than the food. Although the following happened to the person sitting next to me, it illustrates the sort of restaurant Quod is about.
Asked by the waiter if all was all right (obligatory question, these days, like cutlery and napkins on the table: the staff hardly expects a response from their customers), the man asked for bread. "Bread" was all he said at his second and third attempts. And "bread" was finally understood at his fourth. Now, even with an American accent, bread is not an out-of-place word as a request in a restaurant, is it?
Un-pc to mention that, in the hospitality industry, you sometimes can hardly communicate with the staff because they simply don;t speak English? I don't think so: it has become so common place these days and we shouldn't accept it. It simply shows the contempt and the ignorance restaurant owners have for their paying customers.
