Given free reign for his Father’s Day restaurant selection, my husband made an immediate and assertive choice — he wanted the fried chicken and waffle plate at Cafeteria 15L. The family was happy to accede to his hungry wishes, and we dashed to the new restaurant for a celebratory dinner. Normally a careful, healthy eater, my husband plowed through this caloric repast with the greatest enthusiasm. It was fun to watch him enjoy food with such abandon, and I’m thrilled we were able to get him exactly what he wanted on his special day.
