Restaurants These Days!

On Day Three of Mike's vacation, guest host David Plotz of Atlas Obscura and Slate's Political Gabfest welcomes Wesley Morris to air a few grievances about the state of American fine dining, including his dislike of pre-clearing, gratuitous cluster seating, restaurant uniforms, and being ignored. 

Wesley is a staff writer at Grantland and co-host of the film podcast Do You Like Prince Movies?

For the Spiel, there's something fishy going on at Gettysburg.
