"I want to ask you a question about the tomatoes you use here," the woman at Table 42 says.

"Okay," I say.

"She means vis-a-vis salmonella," says her male counterpart.

I stare at him blankly, not because we use salmonella tomatoes, or because I think he has anything to worry about. All of our produce is impeccably sourced, I mean, hello, this is a Ken Oringer restaurant.

I just can't believe the man at Table 42 actually used the term vis-a-vis in a sentence.
