Chilebrown at home

I may be easily amused but I also demand a certain level of service at a high end steak restaurant. That is why I take great delight when the crumb sweeper appears. Last night we dined at Flemings in Walnut Creek I had the most decadent Dry Aged Prime 16 ounce New York Strip steak. This steak was corn-fed bliss. It was the end of our meal and I took a small piece of bread and strategically placed some crumbs on our table. It was time to see if the crumb sweeper would appear. The busboy sort of saw me as he was filling my water glass. He was oblivious and placed the water on top of my wayward bait crumbs. Our cheerful waitress came to the rescue and deftly dispatched the crumbs with her custom crumb sweeping comb. I was happy. Maybe I am easily amused.

The steak sounds delicious - it's been years since I went to a restaurant that swept crumbs. Glad you enjoyed your meal and entertainment :-)

Steak does look good, 3 meals for me!
I have NEVER been in an eating establishment that swept crumbs! Look what I'm missing!
I'm usually the crumb sweeper at my table. :)

Big Dude, It is about time to experience the crumb sweeper. I have to admit it is a dying practice and that is why I appreciate it so much.

Patsy Irene, After one bite of this steak I believe you would finish it. It was so good. No leftovers for me.
