One Extra For Dinner

The other night I had a client dinner at Carmine's Restaurant in New York City.

We were a loud, boisterous crowd of 24.

We were sharing our family-style appetizers, when a fellow employee went to stab a forkful of salad, and saw THIS on his plat

Yes, it was alive.

(No, I'm NOT kidding.)

the manager totally freaked, but then came back and told us he'd take $50 off our bill. considering we were dropping about $2500 for dinner, it wasn't a very impressive offer.

Maybe you guys are all just totally uncool, not realizing that this is a rare and expensive delicacy? And you want to be on the Food Network? ;-)
