Mike "Fed Man Walking" Sutter has taken a break from eating the same thing over and over again to tell you how to be better at eating out. (Minds out of the gutter, please!) The former Statesman critic is all oh, you know, I was just hanging out being on the radio with my friend Cecilia Nasti when she was like, Mike Sutter, you are so good at going to restaurants, why don't you help the rest of us quit being bad at going to restaurants. And Mike Sutter obliged, because who wants to be bad at going to restaurants? Not the people who read Mike Sutter's blog, that's for sure. His tips include checking out a restaurant's website beforehand, because "good restaurants have good websites," and don't be an asshole:
You want better service? Make eye contact with your waiter. Say please and thank you. A lot. Even to the men and women who fill your water glasses. Teach your kids to do the same.We don't want to spoil all the fun, so head over to Fed Man Walking to get your resto re-education.
