As your eating you get a hat. what is the name of this place ?

Does anybody know that restaurant where they make you a tall chefs hat out of paper ? and sometimes write on it. I was passing it by and forgot the name of the place ? I think its a steak house. I dont remember.

  1. This is done for ADULTS, or children? Sounds dreadful. Never seen or heard of it.

    1. I was in a place in South Carolina that did that called Dicks. The waiters write degrading things on the hats and they are very rude to you, hence the name. I think its a chain restaurant - I have never seen this in NYC though, nor would I want to.

        Yeah I saw this is Vegas. Possibly one of the most distasteful things I've ever seen and could only appeal to a select crowd

      2. I have never seen anything like that before. I have no idea what restaurant here would ever do it unless if was for a kids birthday party - maybe that's what you saw?

          Hahhahha...Sorry, that made me chuckle. I completely agree, as I've never seen/heard of this sort of thing here. Sounds like some kind of nightmarish seafood restaurant where waiters dress up as pirates and the atmosphere is very interactive and obnoxious.

        2. Maybe it's that Italian place that hosts a lot of bachelorette parties? Mangia e Bevi?

          1. The question that begs to be asked is why would you be interested in this sort of thing to begin with? I guess you can parade around in dunce caps or whatever privately, but out in public you'll likely be the object of ridicule. If and when the name of this place surfaces, I'm sure people won't be flocking to it any time soon ... but to each his own.
