How horrible/helpful would it be to warn a restaurant in advance

Well considering your question was in regards to whether or not you should call ahead I will answer that! Instead of all of these ridiculous people telling you to never subject anyone to this or that and passing so much judgement! Jeesh. Anyways, I am currently a server, and I have only ever been a server, personally I think it is a great idea to call ahead! and do exactly what you said in the first place: ask for a private area and a thick skinned server. Seriously, if the restaurant can't handle it they shouldn't be in the industry, customer always comes first. If you are going to go out and she is that bad you owe it to the poor server to give them a heads up, they will also be more understanding if a rude comment is made. Also not all servers are capable of handling things like this, I know many people who I have worked with in the past, would either give attitude right back if they didn't understand the situation, or would just plain freak out, not too mention, alot of servers (especially in the summer) are part time and don't know how to handle things like that. I 100% think you should call ahead. PLEASE.

As for whether or not you go out at all: I think you and your husband are the best judges of that, and don't listen to these complete strangers, because they do not have the insight into the situation like you do :)

Good luck, sincerely!

Cilantro recipes

So, I received some cilantro in my CSA this week and I'm not a fan of cilantro really. Does anyone have some good starter recipes I could try to ease into this herb?? Maybe a pesto or something?

Thanks!
