Overheard at Le Bernardin on West 51st Street

  • Waitress: Can I offer you a drink before dinner?
  • Woman: I’ll have an unsweetened iced tea.
  • Waitress: O.K.
  • Woman: Do you have free refills?
  • Waitress: Uh, I’m not sure. I’ll have to check.
  • Woman: Check, and if you do, then I’ll take it with ice. If you don’t have free refills, I’ll have it with the ice on the side.
  • Waitress: Got it.
