Aaron D. Allen, restaurant consultant, is pissed that the three Michelin star restaurant Le Bernardin wouldn't let him bring his cup of Starbucks tea to lunch. We're all ready cast some judgment, but, well, whose side to choose? On the one hand, Allen points out that we're in a recession, so maybe the comically stereotypical French maître d’ shouldn't have turned away a $55 prix-fixe sale over a $3 tea. However, who in their right mind thinks it's acceptable to bring outside food into any restaurant? Starbucks won't even let you do that! [Via Eater]
