The Goddamn Batman: Brunch menus are an open invitation to the cost-conscious chef, a dumping ground for the odd bits left over from Friday and Saturday nights. How about hollandaise sauce? Not for me. Bacteria love hollandaise. And nobody I know has ever made hollandaise to order. And how long has that Canadian bacon been festering in the walk-in? Remember, brunch is only served once a week - on the weekends. Cooks hate brunch. Brunch is punishment block for the B-Team cooks, or where the farm team of recent dishwashers learn their chops.
Chariset: Paging hubieto this threat, stat!
hubiestubert: 16) Your half drunk bottle of wine, in the US, goes down the f*cking drain gets polished off by the staff after the shift for educational purposes, usually at the som's discretion.
NewportBarGuy: And in my day, #`8 was heroin
swingerofbirches: I didn't realize there were resident chefs here.Questions: What do you do for vegetarians? Is it ever worth it for a vegetarian to go to a high-end restaurant (as in, will they ever get something besides a few sides of steamed vegetables)? Do they annoy you (as in, you have to cook something you don't want to)?All of the high-end restaurants near me are heavy into meat. Not only meat, weird types of meat. Fear Factor type stuff. All meat is Fear Factor territory for me, but some is weirder than others. It's hard to even find a salad these days that is vegetarian!
NewportBarGuy: Uhhh... #5 is a lie in my town. "Specials" are usually recently caught fish, or used as the only way the chef can express himself from his regular menu items.I almost almost always order a special precisely because I know it's something the chef wanted to make. (Depending on the item and the mood I'm in.)And in my day, #`8 was heroin.

hubiestubert: 12) This is so f*cking British, I'm not even going to touch it. Seriously. This is deep English psyche sh*t.

staplermofo: Kitchen Nightmares convinced me most restaurants are filthy cesspools run by crybabies and psychopaths.
dready zim: On a side note, I am vegetarian and I eat meat. I try to do it healthily though and avoid cheap cuts or anything too fatty.Anyone who says vegetarians can`t eat meat does not know what the word means...
dready zim: The vegetarian society founded in Manchester, UK, in 1847, says that the word "vegetarian" is derived from the Latin word vegetus meaning lively or vigorous.I am lively and vigorous and I eat meat.Ergo : I am vegetarian a farking idiot.

Prank Call of Cthulhu: "Vegetarians, and their Hezbollah-like splinter-faction, the vegans, are a persistent irritant to any chef worth a damn. To me, life without veal stock, pork fat, sausage, organ meat, demi-glace, or even stinky cheese is a life not worth living.Vegetarians are the enemy of everything good and decent in the human spirit, an affront to all I stand for, the pure enjoyment of food. The body, these waterheads imagine, is a temple that should not be polluted by animal protein. It's healthier, they insist, though every vegetarian waiter I've worked with is brought down by any rumor of a cold.Oh, I'll accomodate them, I'll rummage around for something to feed them, for a 'vegetarian plate', if called on to do so. Fourteen dollars for a few slices of grilled eggplant and zucchini suits my food cost fine."
