... who deduce my name by the booking and time. Led upstairs to a smaller dining room where four other tables are already enjoying their performances, we try not to be distracted and keep our eyes to ourselves. It isn't easy since the wait staff enunciate every description so clearly (and loudly) that by the end of the night we have heard their lines many times over.
