Subject: Reusing the Olives at El Rio Grande
Went there last night for drinks. To get to another side of the restaurant you have to walk through the kitchen( why would a restaurant even let customers walk through there kitchen) Ahead of me was a server who had a plate in her hand with ramekins filled with salsa and olives that she bussed from a table. Instead of throwing out the half eaten food, she proceeded to empty out the remains back in the containers of olives and salsa. I'll never eat there again.
