Perigree, an upscale restaurant in Toronto, recently handed out samples of its food to passersby at the train station. Upscale restaurants all over are feeling the economic pinch. I imagine if a restaurant had a very special standout dish, it would probably win over people to come try its other wares.
Imagine if you could meet the chefs as you walked by. You could ask questions about the ingredients, preparation, inspiration. Probably, from their demeanor, you might be able to tell if their restaurant is someplace you’d like to try. It’s kind of an expanded version of the menu on the front door, which I’m all in favor of.
I know that when I’m able to sample things at a farmer’s market, like luscious tomatoes and peaches, I’m likely to buy some on the spot.
