Food Poisoning Etiquette

New, 1 comment

Dealing with accusations of food poisoning is a dicey situation for restaurants, but in today's edition of Dear Michael, the food section honcho doles out thoughts on the proper etiquette: "It's a thin line to walk, but I think a restaurant can offer a diner comfort without admitting guilt ... The restaurant might also offer to comp a dinner on a return visit. The problem is that if a customer really thinks he or she got sick in the restaurant, the last thing that person wants is to return, at least for a good while." [BauerBlog]
