My wife and I recently ate at the Dumbwaiter Restaurant, a new restaurant in Mobile, Alabama. After a terrific meal at the bar (I highly recommend the “Alabama Benedict”), I walked towards the back of the restaurant. “Is this the dumbwaiter?” I asked the chef. “This is the dumbwaiter!” he replied.
The friendly chef opened the collapsible car gate, and went on to explain that it would cost tens of thousands of dollars to repair the dumbwaiter, so they’ve just been using it to store their beer and wine. Here’s to the day when this dumbwaiter will rise again. Cheers!
