Lou Dobbs Gets Served


From the Financial Times's always classic "Lunch with the FT" series comes this anecdote about a reporter taking Lou Dobbs to lunch at the swanky Grill Room in Manhattan:

After we have taken our seats, Julian Niccolini, the restaurant's Italian co-owner, wanders over and says he would be delighted if Mr Dobbs could peruse his restaurant's new menu. We each take one. It is written entirely in Spanish. Dobbs looks mildly dyspeptic for a moment as he strains to decipher it, then realises it's a joke.

Oh, those tricksters in the restaurant biz!
