I saw the funniest thing at the above mentioned restaurant.
Flatiron & Firkin has, off-late, become my favourite watering hole. It provides authentic Irish ambience, Irish sounding servers, Irish looking bar, Irish drinks, Irish sports playing on the TV etc. The service is fast and super friendly, just like the Irish.
So after having a few drinks at this Irish pub I go over to the washroom which is adjacent to the kitchen. Before entering the washroom, I peeked into the kitchen. And imagine my surprise to see that in this authentic Irish restaurant the kitchen was being run by South Asians!! Everyone in there was speaking in Tamil, loud Tamil music blaring from the speakers and a complete contrast to the look of the restaurant!!
I could not stop smiling for the rest of the evening.
