Three friends meet at a restaurant for brunch on a Saturday afternoon. Patrick, Cynthia and Susie haven’t seen each other in a couple years, so they have lots to catch up on.
The waiter approaches to take their orders.
Waiter: Good afternoon. Welcome to Quintessential Kitchen. Are you ready to order?
Susie: I suppose so. Is everyone ready?
Cynthia and Patrick: Yes, we’re ready.
Waiter: What would you like?
Cynthia: I’d like to start off with a Manhattan, and the Waldorf Salad.
Waiter: Great choice. Our Waldorf Salad is made with vegan mayonnaise.
Susie: Now that’s interesting. Well, I’d like a Bloody Mary and Eggs Benedict.
Waiter: Excellent. How about the gentleman, what would you like, sir?
Patrick: I heard your Clam Chowder is really good.
Waiter: It certainly is. Manhattan Clam Chowder, naturally, non-dairy.
Patrick: Sounds healthy. And a lemonade, please. I love the idea of lemonade with basil leaves, which enhance its flavor so much! By the way, I may have a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon when my meal is served.
Waiter: It really does. I’ll be back with your drinks in a moment.
