It used to be Garibaldi's, then it was Sardinia, now it's Greek & it's still the worst restaurant in the city, so naturally we go there instead of Suburbia at the Angelika, & Robert orders octopus, which is rank, while Lucie orders a Greek salad. "Ugh," she says, because she usually likes feta cheese but this stuff tastes like goat cheese, which she hates. "But Lucie," I say, "feta cheese is goat cheese." She thinks I'm joking. "Let's ask the waitress," Robert says. We bet the tab on it. And when the waitress (name of Tricia) confers with her colleagues, comes back with the hot chocolate, and says, "The consensus is, we're not sure," I knew I had my poem of the day.
