We don’t go out to eat much anymore. It’s too expensive, too much of a hassle, and maybe we’re too ugly.
Restaurants deliberately allocate their best tables to their most attractive diners, an investigation has found.
Models posing as customers for a TV documentary were given “golden tables” in three top restaurants.
But those considered less attractive were seated at the back near kitchens or toilets.
And two restaurateurs admitted it was common practice. TV chef Simon Rimmer owns Greens in Manchester and Earle in Cheshire (both in the UK).
He said: “Every restaurant has a golden table where they sit the best looking customers. A restaurant’s clientele give off a certain message about the place.
“Good looking customers attract more people and make you more cash so you sit them where they can be seen.”
Faith-based food safety has run its course. I’d be more interested in the bugs being served rather than where I was seated.
