Sorry, we are full December 8, 2007

Posted by gordonwatts in Marseille.

Orin, my graduate student, was visiting Marseille for two days yesterday. We went to a nicer place for lunch:

Us: We have 6 people

Them: oh. We are quite full, let me check.

Them: … Sorry, we are full.

Us: How long is the wait?

Them: Over 30 minutes. Very sorry!

Us: <discuss options…>

Them: Unless you’d like to sit in non-smoking?

The room they led us to was in the same area as the smoking room. And was totally empty — they must have had over 30 seats available there! 🙂

So what is this, the French haven’t figured out that food tastes better in a non smoking atmosphere?

Or maybe they specially cook to adjust for the smoking?? So it tastes better?? 🙂
