Doggie Bag Days

Packaging the Leftovers

What’s a restaurant to do when a diner wants to take home…the butter?

By Kathryn Robinson September 14, 2009

At Bastille over the weekend, one table full of little cochons were so thoroughly relishing their Plugra butter they asked to take the remainder home in a doggie bag.

Rude? Reasonable? What do you think?

But first…have you tasted Plugra butter? The European-style butter that’s lower in moisture, creamier in texture, and higher in butterfat than the American standard? Some, ahem, have been known to eat it with a spoon.

After said request, the waiter came back with the doggie bag. When the butter-eaters got home, they found their butter and orange marmalade (yeah…asked for that too…divine) had been placed in the same to-go container as their macaroni and cheese.

Mac ‘n’ cheese with marmalade and Plugra butter—let’s hope the chef never finds out.
