Menu for a New Restaurant

By Justice Korbin Minotaur

Welcome to Maximilien de Robespierre’s Emporium of Cuisine. Never has a man–or a woman, for that matter–wished with more energy of his soul than we here–we, the management and staff of Robespierre’s–wish and desire that you will have a pleasant experience today, here at our restaurant, Robespierre’s–and we mean pleasant in terms of the temperature and moisture level of the food and drink, pleasant in terms of having utensils at your table and a table that is more or less level so that things do not slide off of it, pleasant in terms of the cleanliness of the restroom and the operability of its devices should you you need to use them at any time (or more than once, that is fine too–hopefully not directly because of something bad that happened on the premises of Robespierre’s), pleasant in terms of the hygiene, freedom from infection, and interactivity of our wait staff, who desire to wait on you hand and foot as if you were the king of infinite space. 570 more words
