I had dinner the other night with a business associate/friend. We were seated and the hostess turned to my friend and asked, "would you prefer a black napkin?’
Being a dumb boy, I was surprised and a little confused when my friend said that yes, she would prefer a black napkin. The hostess must have noticed my puzzled expression. She nodded at my friend and said, "she’s wearing a dark dress. A white linen napkin might leave a bit of lint on her dress."
Any restaurant that would pay attention and make accommodations for that level of detail was going to go out of their way to deliver a remarkable experience.
And they did. If there’s a Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar in your area — get there. And ask for a black napkin.
More important — what’s your black napkin?
