OK, there are a lot of trends in New York restaurants that are big gimmicks, but it wouldn’t bother me if they ended up here in North Carolina. I could handle an all dessert restaurant, where they serve a prix fixe three course dessert meal. I could handle a restaurant dedicated to all that is peanut butter. But I draw the line at a restaurant where beer and wine are served in baby bottles. Yup, suck on that one, dear readers. A new fondue restaurant, La Cave du Fondus, is scheduled to open in New York tomorrow, and they will be offering wine not only by the glass, but by the baby bottle. I guess they were out of sippy cups. How about a crazy straw? Seriously, this trend originated in Paris, and this may be evidence that absinthe truly does have a deleterious effect on one’s mental wellness, as there is no other logical explanation for this phenomenon. Freud would have a field day with this.
