I’d like to place a year’s worth of reservations in your echo chamber on Thursdays at 6.23 pm. Sitting for two..mine and the chef’s. I’ll be bringing in my own dish — a spicy spinach lentil soup specially prepared in a bamboo stove by my beloved, but aging Korean maid. Is that too crass? Korean help..I will be bringing my own soup that my help cooks for me on Thursdays. I just want a 20 minute chat with your chef for the latest scoop so I can write viral anti Trump op-eds . Ask your staff to respect the rules of an echo chamber and not to talk to me or look me directly in the eye. I’ll pass on the handshake too. I insist you not bother.
