I would like to respond to the comments posted below by SfumatoPants, and also take the chance to defend one of my favourite restaurants in Vancouver. The staff at Foundation are all rocking the generic Main Street fashion, it's true. Beards, skinny-leg jeans, cruddy high-tops, trucker caps, all topped with dad's old "yard-work" shirt. If that particular style represents pot-smoking, poor hygiene, and lax service, then I'd also like to remind you that Jews are cheap, negroes play in jazz bands, and women are prone to crying fits. Would you feel more assured of a sanitized dining experience if your server was lasered hairless, the chef sporting one of those anorexic pope hats, and the decor resembled the nightclubs you see on CSI: Miami? Let me assure you, those injection-molded bombshells at Earl's and Cactus Club burp, scratch their asses, and shit at least once a day just like the rest of us. Let me get to the point. At Foundation, there isn't an entree over ten dollars, and you could wine and dine with your friends at a price that would make eating at home seem hardly worth the effort of having to wash your own dishes. The servers are all very friendly and prompt, the food is delicious and healthy, and I swear to God, after eating there at least one hundred times I have never been sick. It's all vegetables for fuck's sake, what are you scared of, salmonella from tainted cauliflower? I'm afraid the only cliche is you, SfumatoPants, railing against an imaginary idea of "low brow" and feeling awkward because everyone's buzzed except you.
