Interloper made an effort to clarify. They have spent two weeks seeking an internet outlet to continue their grievances, because they just didn't get the sympathy they felt was theirs. I guess their scorched Earth will continue elsewhere, because we certainly didn't buy it.
I think a dinner at Diora has just come to the top of things to do.
1) This response is much belated since I don't really care to participate in internet forums of any sort and only look at LTHForum from time to time.
2) I have no idea who Lana is and the only reason I bothered to sign up and reply to this thread is because you and others were making statements about the restaurant that were clearly false and which you would have seen were clearly false if you had just bothered to read the menu instead of gleefully joining the the anti-newbie mob that likes to rear its head here from time to time.
3) Even after I point out (2) to you you continue to act as if asking for a beef samsa is some rare especial request instead of a standard menu item:
In Kenji's clip, I was waiting for a special request: please exchange the beef in the boeuf en croute to anything but beef.
and so does at least one other person
proceed to order a special made with lamb but tell the confused waitress they would like it made with beef instead of lamb because they all are allergic to lamb and one in the group was even traumatized by a lamb as a child.
4) The tone and attitude of the postings by most of the people in this thread is childish and embarrassing. Let's all beat up on this person who's pissed off about the godawful treatment she received from a restaurant owner!
Of course, that is to be expected since in the approximately six years that I have looked at this forum off and on it has become clear that taking the business owner's side in a restaurant-customer dispute is default LTH behavior. You people find it hard to believe that six people could be allergic to lamb? I find it much harder to believe that six people would lie about being allergic to lamb and waste two hours in a dispute just to get out of paying four dollars each for a dish that they didn't like. If anyone were to invest so much time into losing so small a sum of money I would be inclined to say that it was done as a matter of principle and as a result of the feeling of offense at having been treated horribly and not out of dishonesty or greed. But hey, what do I know? I'm not a smartass LTHer, just an interloper, so my opinion isn't worth shit. Ciao, sweeties.
