The $250 Popsicle

Eating a Popsicle


My parents took me to a very strange restaurant last night. I suppose they wanted to "re-educate" my palate. This past week I have been sampling some items they say are "not food." (I think this is due to a failure of imagination on their part. More on that in another post.)

Anyhow, the restaurant had pretty much zero ambiance. The seating was pretty comfortable, although they didn't seem to have any booster seats or high chairs. The waiters were all dressed in what I can only guess is some kind of alternative formal wear.

The featured dish must have been a rare delicacy, although it seemed pretty mundane to me. The Chef said it cost $250! It was purple, and I am told it was supposed to taste like grape.
