The other night I performed a great service to clubland ;) and helped my friend Bartend the opening night of a large, bottle service oriented club outside of Lecce. My journey has been so heavily focused on Food/Restaurants, that I thought chance to delve into cocktails, music and youth culture would be a welcomed alternative. I will reserve ALL judgment and not discuss the music, the vibe, management, pricing, staffing, decor etc. Instead let’s talk fruit!
In a region RICH with indigenous fruits, I found it fascinating that the fruit platter which accompanied a bottle of Champagne was an overly priced international selection and that this was a symbol for the bar manager of “luxury”. Above you will see Mango, Avocado, Papaya coconut and a selection of berries. These were served alongside Peach, Pear and Pineapple. The local (and incredible) Melon and Figs were noticeably missing. Their fruits were right outside this gated neverland, ready to be picked.
I want a Burrito, badly!
