There was this wanna-be chic restaurant that opened up in my town a while back. This menu was the McMansion of lazy food with all the trappings of pretense and hipster energy without calling itself something like a gastro-pub. Anyway, they charged like 20 bucks for a caprese salad and proudly put on the menu that it was made from 100 percent beefsteak tomatoes – aka the saddest and palest tomatoes that you can buy en masse. Place lasted a little over a year.
