A restaurant in Melbourne, Australia is being roasted online for offering customers a... unique dining experience. In what seems like an attempt to promote farm-to-table dining values, the restaurant’s tables are covered with a sheet of turf…. And we’re not talking astroturf – it’s real grass and dirt.
After a photo of the grassy tables at Grill’d was posted to Reddit, the internet predictably had a field day. Here’s what people had to say:
The original poster, SkyUnderMyFeet, is just wondering about the logistics of the tables. “Does someone water the tables?” the user wrote. “Like halfway through the meal, they bring out a sprinkler?”
Another user isn’t wondering at all, they’ve concluded it’s just plain gross. “Dirt is dirty,” the person wrote. “It belongs on the ground, not the dinner tables. It’s disgusting.”
Redditor RoboSquirrel thinks it could be useful… if the customers were animals. “I think it’s a restaurant for cows,” the user wrote. “I think this is where my food goes out to eat.”
