Steak-y Story In Our Restaurant | Raising The Steaks
It was your typical Valentine's Day night, where all couples come together for this special day. But, there will always be that one person who is totally nervous for his date even after days of planning.
In order to surprise that special someone with a romantic date night, the boyfriend had checked every item on the list just like how everyone else would. He called us up for further inquiries and made an earlier reservation before bringing his date over to avoid a long wait. How sweet he was for making plans beforehand!
Finally, the red-letter day had arrived. He stepped in our restaurant on time with her in his arms, looking sweet and matchy. As they were seated, our server instantly approached them with the menu.
“Hi, what’s today’s special?” Confidently, he asked.
Being recommended with our selection of prime steak, the guy seemed overwhelmed and appeared puzzled over the different types of steak cuts on our menu. His darting eyes uncovered his inner anxiety and embarrassment as if he was looking for escape routes from talking to his girl.
A strange tension filled the air.
We bet that it was his first time ordering steaks as he was kind of freaked out. What made it worse was that his date was looking at him, waiting for him to speak a proper word. Fortunately, our server stepped in to assist. Surely, if you would like to avoid this, check these ordering tips out to impress your date.
