And That's Nothing Compared to Kosher Restaurants


Where you're sometimes lucky if you can decipher the typos so that you can order. I once had a policy of not eating at places with egregious typos on their menus or with wince-inducing puns as names (there's a place in L.A. called "The Meating Place"), but then I realized I could never eat at a kosher restaurant, so in the interest of occasionally eating out, I had to let go of my copy editor principles. Sad, I know.

I think I'd go out of my way to eat at a punny restaurant. There was a Greek place in San Diego called "Aesop's Tables" and a sandwich place located in a rehabbed bank building in St. Louis called "First Federal Frank and Crust".

I do sometimes, however, erase misplaced apostrophes from restaurant chalkboards or white boards when nobody's looking.
