So the wife and I went out to a restaurant last night and as I was perusing the menu I noticed that they had nice little “Low Carb” and “Low Fat” stickers next to some of the entrees. Great, I thought. The sticker doesn’t give any specifics, but it’s a nice way to give me the heads up on the nutritional “values”. When the waitress comes over to take our order, I asked her if she had a nutritional guide for the menu. Her response was amazing, “Oh no, that’s online, we don’t have it here at the restaurant.” She was basically telling me that if I wanted to time things out with my bolus, that I would have to decide what I wanted to eat before I left the house. And yes, I forgot my little Carb Counting book at home.
Now, there’s another place that the wife and I like to frequent (rhymes with Pizzeria Uno) and they have a great thing in their lobby. While you’re waiting for that coaster-looking thing to vibrate, there’s a touch-screen menu that lets you know of the nutritional value, in some nice detail too.
Have you ever run into a situation like that, where the staff were minimally helpful in providing you with nutritional info?
