    We ate at a restaurant on the Moon. Social distancing and everyone wore masks. Great food and great service! There was, however, a total lack of atmosphere.

    You forgot to mention that the chocolate mousse was incredibly light.

    Hi- I live in a condo building on Ridge near Davis. I came back from the dentist today, and I noticed there were some packages on top of our mailboxes as you enter the building. I was going to bring them inside, and I noticed one of the packages was from Peppercorn Kitchens, and was a delivery they just left there. All it had on the bag was our street address. There was no name or unit number on the bag. It was still hot. I don't know who delivered it. It was pig intestines and something else with pork in it, and so it was not something I would order. The person that put the address down, probably did not realize it was a condo building. The Asian gentleman that ordered it, finally came down to get it after about 15 minutes. He probably called up the restaurant wondering where it was.

    This would be the perfect time to switch to the system I experienced in Seoul. Every table had a button/call bell. Servers only came over when that button was pressed. No need for unnecessary trips from servers.


    None of this sounds fun from either the customers or the servers perspective.


    It's actually brilliant. You only call servers over when you need something. Cuts out the guesswork on both sides.


    The same system is employed at many restaurants in Japan and I agree it's fantastic.



    It is a completely different culture..


    It is a completely different culture. But not because of tipping. The big cultural difference is that they don't suffer from White American Exceptionalism. Over there the government says "wear a mask, take care of each other" and they do. Over here our governor says "wear a mask, take care of each other" and a bunch of people, including those who would tell you with a straight face that they love the restaurant industry, say "eh, kinda a hassle" then they just go ahead and put the server and the other diners and the business and their community at greater risk.

    I like the idea of a button on the table or some other device to signal to waitstaff when you would like them to approach. Could be as simple and inexpensive as the red and green coasters used at Brazilian churrascarias.

    I’d pay a lot for a button like that for everyday life.

    I'd pay double for one that sent people away.
