Took lunch at a new local restaurant today and ran into one of those menu things that really bugs me. One of the items was a tartlet with "wild mushrooms". I had to ask the server which wild mushroom they were using and he came back and said, "cremini." DOINK! That's not a wild mushroom. I have the same issue when I see "diver scallops" in Arizona. "These were caught today, right?" "Uh, no they're fresh frozen". Stop treating us like we're suckers and rubes and maybe the waitstaff will get larger tips!
