Tuna Cutting

Great... now I'm totally craving sushi.

The Right to Refuse Ketchup

"Chef reserves the right to refuse service of ketchup," declares the menu at Mad Fresh, an American bistro in the palm tree–dotted city of Fort Myers, Florida.


Wait, what?

A unapologetic disclosure on the restaurant’s website explains: ”We know, we know. People love their ketsup”—which, apparently, is a valid spelling variant of “ketchup”—”But honestly, be ready. If you’re over 10 years old, ketsup will NOT be provided … We simply ask that you trust us. We know what we’re doing!” [Link]
Totally a restaurant's prerogative to not serve ketchup.

$100 Cognac-Soaked Hot Dog

The decadent dog, created by Vancouver-based restaurant Dougie Dog, comes soaked in the $2,000 vintage Cognac, fried in truffle oil and topped with Kobe beef, fresh lobster and the restaurant’s signature picante sauce.

The foot-long Bratwurst carries a hefty price tag of $100, with more than 1,000 people so far coughing up the cash to sample the restaurant’s “Dragon Dog”, since it first launched in 2012. [Link]
Hmmm... I'm totally tempted to try soaking hot dogs in booze now.
