Can't you smell that smell? I did, even before my longtime dining companion turned up her nose and said, "I don't want to be here."
Last week's stinky dinner -- the food was good, the air was greasy and the owner eventually turned on the ceiling fan -- wasn't the first time that a restaurant didn't pass my longtime dining companion's sniff test.
Never miss a local story.
My longtime dining companion has been odiferiously offended by all of them. In the past, we've walked out of restaurants rather than stay. This time, I gave my longtime dining companion the vinegar-and-dagger look that said, "Hold your nose and eat. I've got a job to do."
Which leads to a simmering question:
What kind of restaurant smells annoy you? What do you do when something stinks?
