Flavors Salad Redemption, Or A Case of Simple Physics?
A few weeks ago I posted a grievance sent in from a reader who wanted to complain about the salad at Flavors- a generic deli in the hallway beneath the Fox News building which may or may not be owned by Cafe Metro. Since then, it appears as if they have changed their policy… “Redemption song for flavors. I’m quite positive that the folks at flavors have read this grievance! I just got back from flavors and the salad was huge! not just mine but everyone around me as well. i think they’ve stepped up a notch because the salads taste great but now they are at a size worth its semi overpriced tag!”
Another luncher was quick to rebuke this
shill enthusiastically delivered news by dropping a bit of science on me…
“FYI- I work in the Fox building upstairs from Flavors and have been there a few times. I have had the salads (though did not chop it) and it was quite full. Now, according to the laws of physics, if you take something and break it down in volume it appears as such without hampering the actual weight. In this case, you chop lettuce and it’s finer and less bulky decreasing in volume size creating an image of less salad in the bowl. If you measure the salad by weight it is the same. So… You are merely getting what you paid for. A chopped salad. Go to that place CHOPT on 51st street and you get the same thing for $$$more! Might want to go back to school my friend.”
(Ouch.) Who said you never learned stuff on Midtown Lunch!?!
