New York Restaurant Missed Connections

New, 6 comments

Although the dining rooms of the city are filled with many happy couples, they are also inhabited by lovesick diners looking to catch the eye of that special someone. Sometimes, these people take to Craigslist, to try and find that guy or girl who they saw from across the dining room, but weren’t able to muster the courage to say something to. Here now are a few restaurant missed connections — perhaps love is on the menu for these lonely people sometime soon.

Schillersmissedconnections1.jpgLOVESICK AT THE LIQUOR BAR—Scruffy Schiller's waiter (m4m): Not sure which way you swing, but you were very sexy. I was with a group of young ladies having dinner Sunday night. You had the sexy beard and served our table. Hope you take this as a compliment either way, but if you want to email me back, tell me about what I looked like and a bit about what I ordered to know it's you. Cheers. [Photo]

grimaldismissedconnections.jpgDAYDREAMING IN DUMBO — In line at Grimaldi's (M4M): You were in line at Grimaldi's with someone (your sister? your girlfriend??) on Monday. You're real cute. Taiwanese maybe? that's just a guess. I was interested, and thought you might be too. This is the Asian guy in the grey shirt, just in front of you in that ridiculously long line. If interested, I'd like to get a slice with you sometime.[Photo]
spottedpigmagnums.jpg PROPHYLACTICS AT THE PIG To the male Hostess at Spotted Pig (W4M): You may never see this but I just wanted to explain the box of magnum condoms being thrown at you from my moving cab while you were taking a break outside. Please don't take it as anything but a joke. My friend and I jumped into the cab and there it was, a box of Magnum condoms sitting on the seat. After a quick laugh, I thought it would be funny to throw it out the window towards you. Hopefully you and your friend got a nice laugh out of it, if not please accept my sincere apology :) [Photo]

delicatessen1.jpgHEARTBEATS AND SMOKED MEATS —Cashier at Mile End Deli (M4W): I was there with 2 friends around 4:30 on Thursday. And I got a cinna-bun at the end, and it was delicious. And I'd like to talk with you more. You had a great sense of humor. Would be excellent if you saw this... missed connection? I think so. [Photo]
spitzers_corner1.jpgLOWER EAST SIGHS: Spitzer's Corner Saturday night (w4m): Saw you at Spitzer's Corner saturday night. You had sandy blonde hair, blue shirt (?) and at one point holding two drinks and staring at me. Me - asian girl, sitting down, delirium in hand. You wanted to talk to me I could tell but disappeared as soon as the guy next to me asked me about something. So what was it - nerves or girlfriend? [Photo]
