Dan Rodricks went to the new Gino's Burgers & Chicken. There, he discovered good manners, people waiting in line patiently calmly.
He mentions the "chat-and-cut" phenomenon that Larry David introduced on a recent "Curb Your Enthusiasm." Apparently, David, the Linnaeus of rudeness, has been having fun with restaurant behavior this season. I've read as much on dining websites, and friends tell me about it. I am alergic to "Curb Your Enthusiasm." I know you're supposed to not like the characters, but I hate, hate, hate them so much that I get zero entetaintment from watching them. naming-of-rude-phenomena thing feels super stale.
