Nectarine Rebuttals

2008_08_zunismall.jpgFor those who think that the solo nectarine dessert at Zuni Cafe might be a mere gag: "I'm the one who ordered the nectarine and I can assure everyone that this is not a fake. It was on the dessert menu on the evening of Thursday, July 31, 2008. We saw a waitperson walking by our table while trying desperately to balance a nectarine on an otherwise empty white plate and asked our server what it was. When she responded with an absolutely straight face and described it as a Blossom Bluff nectarine, we instantly [knew] we had to order one so we could capture it on film in all its glory. My big regret is that we didn't think to include the menu and the knife that came with it as part of the picture. I can attest to the quality of the nectarine, but given said quality, it actually did deserve a better presentation." [EaterWire]
