There are two kinds of restaurants in this world.
The kind whose staffs say all of this to each other, and/or discuss it over cocktails after the guests are gone, and then there’s Boston’s jm Curley, who actually has the guts (and/or luxury!) of actually printing it on their menu! We applaud their honesty, good sense and good humor!
Read it here. If it’s not you, enjoy the perspective. If it is you, maybe give it a second read!
Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s date, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor his grub, nor his cocktail, his barstool, space, nor anything that is thy neighbour’s.No one on our staff goes by: Hey, Yo, Sonny, Tiger, Pal, Kid, Sport, Sweetie, Honey, Pork Chop, Chief, Champ, Captain, Boss, Buddy, Babe, Barkeep, Barmaid, Big Guy, Ma’am or Missy.
No loud shrieking, shouting, bellowing, whining, barking, nose blowing, flatulence or obnoxious cellphone use.
No groping, grab ass, mauling, sucking face, canoodling or heavy petting.
We welcome all comments and suggestions, but refrain from,“You should…” We know we should, but we can’t do everything and please everyone. Open your own restaurant if you know how it should be done.
The customer is NOT always right. However, the respectful customer is always right, and the asshole customer is always wrong.
No foul language…
Nobody’s perfect. Please alert us immediately if your expectations are not met. Exaggerating or lying on Yelp, Chowhound, or to anyone (after you leave) who can’t fix the problem, is for yellow-bellied cowards.
It’s food and drink, not life and death. Don’t take yourself too seriously, we don’t.
…Just don’t be a douchebag.
