Annoying Restaurant Trends
Earlier this year, Zagat revealed its list of “The 10 Most Annoying Restaurant Trends.”
Among those that I wholeheartedly agree with:
–Tables Ridiculously Close Together. It’s not only a space problem. I hate sitting so close to the next table that it feels like we’re all eating together. Forget having a private conversation or being spared having to listen to the couple next to you argue.
–Designer Ice. Have you been to any of these overly pretentious bars that serve their drinks with giant cubes, hand carved from enormous ice blocks. Yes, I guess it keeps the drink from being watered-down (especially if you’re paying $12 and up a pop).
–Unisex Restrooms. They just cause confusion for everyone, and sometimes women (and men, I can only assume) need their own space to freshen up.
Other annoying trends on the list include: dogs in cafes, enormous wine glasses, ketchup snobbery and wood-infused food.
What do you find most unbearable when eating out?
