From my experience I will give advice.
A restaurant to which you should not go
Is where you cannot see the food or price
Because the lights are dimmed so low.
Where out of the darkness just short of night
Again and again the waiter emerges
To ask, "Is everything all right?"
While you struggle to control your urges.
I know that food reviewers judge
The quality of wine and how plush the seating.
But I have my standards and will not budge,
I insist on seeing what it is I'm eating.
