Last night The Man, the neighbors and I walked down to Sunset Blvd. for some dinner.
We decided to give Dusty’s another try, thinking that perhaps they’d worked out their oversalting problem we’d had with their food the first two times we went there.
I have quite a few gripes with the place but I have trouble arguing with the location, as I’m always keen to walk instead of drive to a nice dinner out. Plus they were able to seat us right away in a spacious booth in the corner.
The main gripe last night went like this. We ordered a bottle of wine. Four glasses were placed on the table, the wine poured for us and then Amy noticed that her glass had lipstick on the rim. Amy’s not one for lipstick (well, no one at the table is) so we knew it was there when it arrived. The waiter came back and Amy pointed it out to him. He returned a moment later with another glass. And then left.
Now I don’t want to sound uppity or anything, but maybe when I go into a restaurant that charges a certain amount per entree I expect a certain level of service. I don’t expect that the patrons are obliged to either waste the glass of wine because it was poured into a dirty glass by the server … or that the patron has to pour the wine from the dirty glass into the clean one, figuring that the only “dirty” part of the glass is the lipsticky part. (And Amy did an expert job of that without any drippage.)
It was a nice idea thinking that there was a good place to have some dinner near the house, but I think I’m giving up on Dusty’s and sticking with Rambutan.
Anyone have any suggestions on how that should have been handled from either side?
