As is our habit, when we work late, we dine out. Tonight we decided to try a new Italian place. I ordered chicken cacciatore and an appetizer of fresh water mussels.
By far the worst meal I've ordered in years. Both the mussels and pasta were so over salted I couldn't eat either.
A few minutes after our meals arrived the chef walked out and asked if we were, basically, satisfied with our food. I mentioned the mussels and pasta were over salted. Sweet Wife agreed.
Now get this, the chef said it was impossible. He had not added salt to the dishes. I said sorry, but he was wrong and to taste the mussel sauce. He dipped a piece of my bread then said, it's fine. Argued with me.
The chef neither asked if I'd like a replacement nor did he offer a discount or adjustment to our bill. We were his only customers.
Ask me if I'll return.
