    'I just SEEN' is not correct!
    'I just SAW' will not make me angry, so please use it!

    I hate trying to read a post when it makes no sense, words spelt wrong, no punctuation used etc. Makes it hell and I tend not to bother responding.

    Just a point, some of the best chefs are also completely illiterate. Many regular chefs are somewhat illiterate. It's a really common trait within the industry. It doesn't make them worse cooks but can explain why they have a 'practical' job rather than in an office, for example.

    Another point - often the chef provides the menu on a scrap of paper to the owner or front of house manager or other employee, who is the person responsible for printing/typing - and often mistakes end up happening there.

    My point for the foodie in you - don't equate bad spelling on a menu to a bad chef it does annoy me in general but not in the same way you explain about questioning the capabilities/quality control etc of the restaurant itself.

    I agree, but can't help it! To my mind a good restaurant has good marketing / pr too. I agree with what you're saying though

    The BH iPhone app has 'favorites' instead of 'favourites'.

    The iPhone is always changing my spellings of behaviour, favourite, colour etc to the American spelling where they drop the u. I always change it back but the bloody phone still wins because it then mocks me with a big, fat, red underline :$ grrrr

    Can anyone else see something wrong with the BH FB ad in the top left corner, or is it just me?
