Restaurants need to start keeping it real and stop putting their email addresses on their websites if they aren’t going to respond.

I have been rejected via email thrice by restaurant/food establishments.

Once I emailed Tupelo Honey for their pimento cheese dip recipe. I even went so far as to say I was having an allergic reaction to something in the dip and needed to know the whole recipe, including the secret spices. No recipe and no luck!

Then a few months ago I emailed the St. Germain restaurant in San Juan, telling them that if heaven serves food, it would be theirs. I then asked for their shrimp marinade recipe for the sandwich I had ordered there. They never responded! But they did accept my email for something because now I get emails every week from them asking me to donate money to Japan.

Unless I can put that donation on some shrimp and eat it with a pita, no thanks Japan.

And last but not least, Ghirardelli. I emailed those chocolatiers three times about my “sealed for freshness” EMPTY chocolate wrapper I got in a dark chocolate assortment pack. All I received in return was automated responses and empty promises to respond to my email in the order in which it was received.

That was about 2 months ago and I still haven’t heard a response, so I think it’s time to abandon the mission and throw away the evidence :( Defeat!

I guess people who own restaurants just don’t appreciate the psychotic lengths to which one will go for food. My restaurant emailing days may end before they really even began. Talk about a lose-lose!
