When he's not swearing himself blue in the face before the watershed or effing and blinding with Kevin Spacey, Gordon Ramsay spends some time as a chef and restaurateur.
And while caught in a surprisingly generous mood this week, the grumpy chef has shared his golden rules for eating out in restaurants, which are:
- Avoid specials
- Be suspicious of ridiculous boasts
- Be prepared to haggle for wine.
Speaking to Mail Online, the reality TV star explained: "Specials are there to disappear throughout the evening, when they list 10 specials, that's not special."
He also recommends booking a table for more people than your party to secure a better table saying: "If you're planning a dinner for two, book a table for three so they don't stick you "in the corner like a doorstop."
Classic considerate customer is Ramsay.
