A solo diner sat down beside us and ordered quickly immediately after we arrived. The waiter returned with his food: fried hen and pancakes, every thing just suitable, burnished gold and stunning beneath a thread of rosemary, future to a compact carafe of maple syrup. This platter was amazing not just to the male who ordered it but to all those people surrounding him. Another person requested to acquire a photograph of the dish.

And a citrus-sauced roast salmon with potatoes that’s speedy plenty of for every day use — but extravagant ample to serve to enterprise, too.
