Here’s a question: When was the last time you sat at a restaurant, saw the waiter walking down the aisle with a neighboring diner’s dessert, commented “that looks unbelievable,” and watched with delighted awe as the waiter made an unexpected stop at your table to drop off said dessert?  Surprise, this one’s on the house!   Never, of course, is the answer.  That’s never happened before, not to anyone.  It’s too good to be true.  Or is it?

Because this is, in fact, exactly what happened this afternoon at the now-holy burger joint R.J. Grunts.  I was on the bike, stopped to meet a friend for lunch (ate the onion rings, so tenderly crisp and savory – order them) and was preparing to pay the bill when the above chimerical scene took place.  It’s the dream of every diner everywhere, and the strangest part of all is we have no idea why.

Cheers, R.J.

Food was always to be shared.  When my master sent out his untouched
dishes from the huge imperial repasts to the families of the princes and the
chief bureaucrats, he would send them only as complete meals for eight
people in stacked lacquerware.  Never any other way.  Always for eight.  The
high point of every meal was never the food itself, he taught us, but always
the act of sharing it.
