Ex president wanted to try trendy restaurant owned by Jamie Oliver, but was refused admission.
Wonderful story. Bravo for Jamie Oliver, good to hear his restaurant is such a success. Too bad the story had more to do with the restaurant's success and policy of treating customers equally rather then something juicy for the gossip hounds to munch on.
A question I would ask is, why is this a news story in the first place?
lol...that's pretty cool that the restaurant didn't bow down to celebrity!
'bout time these arseholes were treated like everyone else.
I cant imagine that there are many restuaranters who would not seize the opportunity to be able to include a president of the U.S.A. on their client list.
I'ts a great pity that there aren't a lot more Jamie Olivers around, and a lot less arse kissers.
Difficult to believe that this young twenty something is a self made millionare.
Usually, at his age millionares are either rock stars or Bill Gates.
Now I know why me wife loves me, and has a wee crush on Jamie Oliver. I would have done the same damn thing. First come, first serve, and no overbooking, it ruins the experience for everyone else. You have to bump someone to accomodate these asses who think they deserve crap on the strength of who they are. **** them. It's the chef/restauranter's domain, and all customers get equal treatment. Heh heh. I am a 'tad' jealous of this young upstart's success, but what the hell, good on him. I also agree with Craven, this kind of advertising you can't buy...
Ha ha ha! I say "Nyah!" to Clinton.
I can imagine the conversation:
"Do you know who I am?!"
"Then let me in."
"We're full up."
"Do you know who you're talking to!?"
"Yes. Please leave, and next time remember to book in advance."
Yay for Jamie.
