Pho Grand

How do you measure restaurant service? By the frequency waiters refill your water glass? By the speed with which you get your food? Sure, but it's also about going to Pho Grand, forgetting to order a vegetarian variation of their cucumber salad and making an almost-inaudible groan. The waitress spins back around and asks if anything's wrong. Without missing a beat or batting an eye, she swoops up your mistake and returns faster than fast with the preferred version. Service. And that's just one for-instance.
