Kyle Neath, on Pace:
In Barcelona, once you’re done with the meal your server comes by to take your plates away and asks if you’d like some coffee. Encouraging you to stick around and enjoy the surroundings.
I’ve grown used to the pace of American restaurants but I’m not fond of it. When in Ireland we also had to ask for our check. I like that. It makes me feel as though I’m appreciated for stopping by – not just a number.
Every once and a while you stumble across a place in America that doesn’t buy into the fast pace that Kyle describes. And that is when you quickly jot it down to remember to go back again and again.
