so, is it just me, or during the full moon cycle, do customers seem to be more demanding, more high maintenance and just plain wacko? geez, this one seemed crazier than usual with plate deconstruction and bizarro behavior..one particular incident....a woman orders our "teriyaki tuna', which as the menu reads, is a sesame glazed grilled ahi with a sake ginger sauce, asian pesto(spinach, basil, ginger,chile etc.),and wasabi 'bullet'.....served with oriental vegetable and rice stir fry...the plate comes back...she wants all the sauces taken off, because nothing goes with anything, and it ruins the tuna, she doesn't like the veggies...she doesn't want the stir fry rice, she wants roasted garlic mashed potatoes....did she not read the menu? what would possess someone to even order that dish...she brought in a 12 year old bottle of wine that the cork was just dust and so staff spent alot of time trying to decant the stuff, which in the end wasn't drinkable anyway,then she wanted to change tables when they got dessert...oh, and of course, the other family members were all 'on the siders'...how the hell can you order a simple spaghetti with garlic,butter, herbs and white wine dish and want everything on the side? of course we were right in the middle of an extremely busy night with every table full... i just said no...order a kids plain pasta plate...as for the tuna, i just wiped off, threw it on the grill for a second or two to burn off any 'evidence' and returned it with the mashers...really pissed me off though..at that point i just wanted them gone....oh well, glad to see that moon gone...rest of the weekend was equally as crazy and weird...go figure!
