I get a boatload of spam from PR folks trying to get me to try a particular restaurant. I never go. I figure, if the restaurant is really any good, I’ll hear about it from someone else. Additionally, going and eating canapes at the opening VIP reception for a restaurant is not exactly representative of what the food’s going to be like for most diners.
But, I have finally happened upon a technique that is almost guaranteed to get me to come to your restaurant and try your food. Name a dish (or in this case an entire section of the menu) after me. This is from my dad who was visiting the Beneluxx Tasting Room in Philadelphia.
Benelux, save me a table please. I’m on my way!
