Two women were just trying to enjoy a romantic dinner at a restaurant in Lafayette, Indiana when their evening was interrupted by the restaurant’s chef who lamented their sexual orientation.
Ellie Parker and her girlfriend Lucy were at the Asahi Japanese Steakhouse in Lafayette, Indiana when the chef came out and greeted them. According to their Facebook post complaining of the incident, “We told him we were each other’s Valentines. We were holding hands mind you. Clearly a couple. He proceeds to say ‘well it is legal, but it’s such a waste to not have a man.’” The chef then allegedly suggested that he could “come home with them to heat things up.”
The couple decided to get revenge on the restaurant’s alarmingly sexist and homophobic chef by writing on their receipt: “Don’t tell lesbians they need a man on Valentine’s Day,” in the spot reserved for a tip.
“I cannot believe I paid over $50 to have my relationship insulted and sexualized,” Ellie said.
The Facebook page for the Asahi Japanese Steakhouse has since been deactivated. The Daily Meal has reached out to the restaurant for comment.
