Looks Can Be Deceiving

Observe this photo, taken in a restaurant restroom.


Fancy pants! A designer sink and faucet, a scented candle, glass tiles… what you don’t see is the recessed lighting and the vase with fresh flowers.

Which of the following menu items would you see when sitting back down at the table after leaving this restroom?

A.) Poached Chicken Breast and Roasted Thigh, with Root Vegetables in a Foie Gras Lentil Sauce
B.) Thai Barbeque Lamb Skewers on Preserved Mayer Lemon and Heiricorn Tomato Salad
C.) Cheeseburger Deluxe, served with cole slaw, french fries, lettuce, tomato, and pickle

If you guessed “C,” you’re right: it’s Green Kitchen, a diner at 77th and 1st. The Upper East Side is a strange, strange place.

  1. I must check this place out right away…

    Heiricorn? Is that foodie l337 speak for “heirloom”?

  3. I would have guessed C just because I can’t picture you eating at either of the first two restaurants mentioned.
