Our Ask Allison question talks about restaurant etiquette!
Here's the question:
“Recently, I had lunch with a former boss at a local Italian restaurant in the Penn section of downtown.
It was near the end of the lunch and we did have a large amount of leftovers.
As we were talking and winding down, the waiter came over and said “The people at the next table would love a taste of you eggplant parmesan."
I looked over at the table and saw four strange women waving.
Now the leftovers were mine but my table mate was paying and said sure and the waiter brought a plate and sliced a piece.
They all sampled the food and said thanks.
I couldn't believe it!
I am mad at my friend, the waiter and disgusted by the "beggars" - I would never think to ask a stranger for "a bite."
Have we become that tacky?”
Signed: shocked and appalled
P.S. the eggplant parm is outstanding.
