Essay about a visit to a restaurant

Recently a friend of mine, Sandeep, gave us some good news. He had been promoted at work. Anne, another friend of ours, also had good news, although of a different kind. Her engagement date had been fixed. We had been anticipating the event for sometime. All the friends were talking about how this calls for a party, when another of our friends, Balbir, announced that he was moving to the United States. He had already started the formalities and he was feeling optimistic that he would soon get a visa. One of his uncles, who lived in the States, had asked him to come and work with him. The uncle did not have any children and had offered Ravi to come and stay with him and take care of his business. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity for Ravi.

Whatever the good news, it was obvious that the beneficiary of good news should give a treat or party depending on the quality of the good news.This news was mind blowing and all the friends now had another party to look forward to. Unfortunately, both the events were back to back and it was not even certain that Balbir would be able to attend Annie’s engagement, let alone the wedding.

It was decided that on the coming Sunday Sandeep, Annie and Balbir would give all of us a party at this really high end Fusion Food Restaurant called Fusion Food. Annie would make the reservations and she would split the bill with Sandeep and Balbir.

Making reservations at a restaurant

Fusion Food:

This is the Fusion Food restaurant. How may I help you?

Annie:

Hi! I would like to reserve a table for six for Saturday night. 

Fusion Food::

Thank you for calling Ma’am. This is for the coming Saturday, am I right?

Annie:

Yes. That’s right.

Fusion Food::

Let me check if we have seats available.

Annie:

Sure! Today is Tuesday. You mean reservations are done much in advance?

Fusion Food:: 

Yes ma’am. Saturdays are especially very busy here. Reservations are done a month in advance. 

What time will you be coming in?

Annie:

Around Sevenish.

Fusion Food::

Yes ma’am. You are in luck. We do have a table for six available in the evening on the coming Saturday.

Should I confirm it?

Annie:

Yes. Definitely. 

Fusion Food::

Thank you ma’am! What name should I write down for the reservation?

Annie:

I am Annie. Put the reservation in my name.

Fusion Food::

Thank you ma’am. A table for six have been reserved in the name of Annie on Saturday at around 7 o’clock.

Would you like to pre-order welcome drinks or appetizers.

Annie

No! Thank you. We will decide on the day. Is it ok if I call later and pre-order anything if something comes to mind. 

Fusion Food:: 

Of course ma’am. Call us anytime before Saturday evening if you want to pre-order anything. 

Will there be anything else?

Annie:

No. That’s all.

Fusion Food::

Thank you for calling Fusion Food.

Have a good day ma’am!

Rohan :

Maitre De:

I would suggest something light like a sweet lime juice.

I:

Sure. Get me one.
