My grandparents took us out to a nice fancy (expensive) restaurant for dinner, but the problem with these types of restaurants is that they don't have what we mere humans call "food", they have "cuisine".|
"Cuisine" does not equal "food".
And for some reason, it seems like a good idea for the majority of the menu to be written in cuisin-ese (also known as French), which renders it quite impossible to understand and to subsequently order food that I like to think of as edible.
I ended up with a salad, which I thought was perfectly safe. It was the only thing I understood all the ingridients of on the menu! How can you go wrong with "hearts of romaine" and "aged parmesan"? I know what both of those items are- lettuce and cheese. Simple enough...but wrong! It also had spicy dressing and cold chicken.
See? "Food" does not equal "cuisine", because this definitely was not edible.
I do not understand the restaurant industry- excuse me, the "Culinary Arts".
