The Quotable Alfred Portale

Alfred Portale explains why he does not offer verbal specials at Gotham Bar and Grill: "I never really understood specials. I always used to think: Isn't everything on the menu special? Restaurants don't always tell the prices when they're listing specials verbally; they don't want to print fifty-two dollars on the menu. At Gotham we have what we call 'page three,' listing dishes that go on the menu on a weekly basis, and that's the only page we print every night because I don't like to waste paper."
