One of the waiters longs to be the host of a quiz show.(Gotta love NYT style. Does anyone else spell "ok" like that?)
"Any questions about the menu?" he asked some friends of mine. When they said no, he challenged them.
"Really?" they recalled his saying. "O.K.: what are cèpes?" Cèpes were listed on the menu at Thor as accompaniments to grilled beef tenderloin, and they are mushrooms, as my friends delightedly told him.
