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.
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?
