Recently I mentioned an adventure I had in the men's room of a French restaurant. This prompted some friends to ask me why the first thing I do in a restaurant is to use the facilities.
Frankly, I find that the condition of the men's room is often an indicator of the quality of the restaurant.
A clean, tidy, well maintained restroom usually means a well prepared, satifying meal.
A unkept, littered restroom and - well, look forward to a visit from Mr. Reflux.
