Serious Eats: Talk
By the bathroom or by the kitchen...
Years ago, a friend told me that in restaurants, they try to seat you first by the bathroom or by the kitchen when they are available b/c those are the least desirable spots, but they have to be filled. I thought that was strange, but that has proved to be pretty much true. Now that I am aware, I request re-seating.
Anyone have a similar experience?
