Waiting



These waiters at Chez Fonfon, on Birmingham's 5 Points District, were enjoying the calm before the storm. I caught them right before the evening crowd began to gather.  Chez Fonfon is one of Chef Frank Stitt's fine restaurants here in Birmingham.  Check one of my earlier posts for a photo of their outdoor dining area.

I do love those french uniforms for waitors. It makes the dining experience so much classier than, say a purple haired girl with multiple piercings and tattoos asking, "What can I get ya?"

Unfortunately, I dine at the later establishments more frequently than the former.

Ah, c'mon, you took this in a small town in Provence, didn't you? Wherever the location, you really captured the atmosphere. BTW, my wife just saw your comments on her Nepal pix and sends her thanks.
