Skip to comments.Lawsuit: Vegetables stuck in workers undies before being served at upscale Boca steakhouse
Posted on 11/04/2011 8:50:24 AM PDT by ConservativeStatement
According to a lawsuit filed in Palm Beach County court, kitchen workers at the Morton's of Chicago steakhouse in Boca Raton stuck raw vegetables in their underwear before serving them to unsuspecting diners, the website www.GossipExtra.com reported.
In his harassment action against the restaurant chain, sous-chef Reggie Williams claims he witnessed a colleague at the restaurant at the Shops at Boca Center "place stalks of asparagus inside his underwear, next to his anal/genital area in order to simulate his penis," then "serve that asparagus to Morton's unsuspecting paying customers."

This would have gone over better in SF. “Specially handled” vegetables—it could even have been listed on the menu with an extra charge.
Boca is proudly Liberal/commie.
Serves them right (pun intended).
FYI..Morton’s CEO died the other day..I forget his name..he was young, 64, which is sad...but happily he missed this..
I'm sure dykes have a way of serving those vegetables, too.
I’m confused - if the Chef witnessed this happening, why did he allow the food to be served to a customer? (and of course, kill the waiter - send him to Texas our execution division needs more work)
Reminds me of an Italian restaurant where I once worked. The owner did the same thing with a rolled up slice of prosciutto, to entertain the kitchen staff. I can’t remember if they served it or not though.
Reason #1 why I’ve all but quit eating out. Fast food, upscale, barely matters. The values of the whole country have been destroyed by the third world homo socialist cabal who have been teaching our children for the last two or three generations.
Allen J. Bernstein, who greatly expanded the high-end Mortons of Chicago steakhouse chain during his 17 years as chairman, applying what some in the industry called a Big Mac approach to filet mignon, died on Tuesday at a hospital near his home in Manhasset, N.Y., on Long Island. He was 65.
He died after a long illness, his wife, Lori, said.

Im told cucumbers were involved, too.
All together now: Ewwwwww!
According to the law suit the four co-defendants would fondle Mr Williams and other male staff, bite their ears and simulate intercourse, while management watched indifferent.
This behaviour culminated in an attack in the restaurant’s dry storage area on Valentines Day this year, Mr William claims in the complaint.
Bleus allegedly pulled his own pants down to exposed himself and tried to remove Mr Williams pants in an attempt to penetrate him.
Williams, who has been married for 11 years and has two sons, said he had to leave the job after the alleged assault.
He filed a police report, but he told authorities that he didnt want to prosecute.
The officer wrote the Manager, Larry Thomas, ‘kind of knew what took place but didnt have any details, ‘ NBC reported.
Hey, waiter, these veggies taste like crap.
Could this story be a subliminal attack on Herman Cain, suggesting that he was the CEO of a bunch of wild out of control restaurants?
This is not a homosexual issue. This is a maturity and morality issue on the part of the cooks.
Watch the movie "Waiting" with Ryan Reynolds, and you'll see what I mean.
It wasnt immediately known who Bleus attorney was, and Mortons told NBC Miami that Bleus and two the workers named in the suit no longer work at the establishment.
Williams claims the management observed Bleus taking the asparagus back out of his anal-genital area, returning it to his work station despite the real risk of exposing to the public serious illness and injury, and later serve that asparagus to Mortons unsuspecting paying customers.
“Not just himself but coworkers of his were exposed to this and even patrons of Morton’s were exposed unbeknownst to them, to the most irreprehenisble food handling practices one can imagine,” said Jorge Silva, Williams’ attorney.
Amen. I wouldn't even THINK of eating food prepared by others whenever it can be avoided...
Okay, that was unexpected...good one!
Somewhere Tony Bourdain is reading this story and saying “I worked with that guy!”
Yeah, homosexuals shouldn’t even be allowed to work.
I was thinking more of “Animal House”, the scene in the supermarket where Otter is hitting on Mrs. Wormer in the produce section.
That is why some restaraunts food prep ares are open and visible to the public.It is probably better to go inside and stand at the counter rather than use the drive-thru in the evenings when stupid,irresponsible people might “play” with your food.My co-worker said a McD employee could hardly contain her laughter when handing his food out the window ,and after eating it ,he was sick(vomiting).
Food workers should be prosecuted for felony assault whenever mishandling of food is proven.
That’s the #1 reason you don’t go out to eat? Fear of people putting your food in their pants! Really?
Well, you may like the special sauce, but that's your business.
FORCING employers to hire non-qualified, customer-losing, and visibly offensive employees is not good for business, or for discriminating customers.
You wanna play dress-up, don't do it in my business place.
Restaurant workers deliberately contaminating the food, yes, that’s the reason.
Or not washing their hands after going to the bathroom, etc.
Absolutely. Jail time offense.
Paging Gordon Ramsay!
...now there's the reason you should wash the living daylights out of store-bought produce.
Why would the paralegal stuff veggies into the recipient’s drawers before serving them the subpoena??
Is that a vegetable in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?
(Apologies to Mae West)
This is old news. Anthone Weiner resigned months ago.
Damn, Stuart - now there's coffee all over my keyboard........
Lol, haven’t seen the movie, but it looks like someone sent the food back and kitchen staff step out of the kitchen to give him the evil eye?
It's a specialty of our entremetier.
I believe it is.
At least it’s not in your pants
Most women get violent and make a big scene with men who sexually violate them in public. Men don’t?
Sexually aggressive homos should be afraid to sexually attack other men. A good butt kicking takes the fun out of it and the resturant management would want it to stop for fear of public exposure and violence. I can’t beleive grown men let themselves be victims of perverts! Homo sexual harassment is assualt and self defense is legal! If management is in on it (protecting the perverts) and firing empoloyees who won’t be victimized, a camera phone and web site is all that’s needed!
No man should be expected to be a “good sport” about homo sexual harassment. No employee should tolerate the contamination of customers’ food.
I am waiting for the “ Egg Plant”..
“Yeah, homosexuals shouldnt even be allowed to work.”
You are the only person on this board saying that.
Used to work at pizza shops, been a waiter and a bartender back in college to pay my tuition. That’s only the half of it based on my experience. 5 star hotels are more strict about their service, regardless of the snottiness.
Then when I was bartender for small restaurant/bars, the staff did not give a sh*t. Same thing being a waiter: remember...when you send your food back due to a complaint, there’s an 80% chance, the cook will spit in it especially if the kitchen head isn’t looking.
Yup, sounds about right. Also when they think you may have stiffed them previously on the tip, they'll spit in your food or worse. I never stiff them, but it makes me nervous when I go to a restaurant and they say, "Hey, you look familiar," which I seem to get a lot. Maybe some guy who looked vaguely like me stiffed them once, so they're gonna pee in my food! Sheesh.
As often as we hear about such things, YOU KNOW that 99.999% of such incidents must go unreported because no one ever sees anything or is any the wiser.
“”Hey, you look familiar,” which I seem to get a lot.”
You should have told them “yeah, I tip a lot”. Hard to go to restos’ nowadays after you witnessed some of the nasty stuff. I mean, if your friends invite you out to eat, you can’t say no out of that fear. You just have to go. Funny part is I’m the one being nice to the waiter instead of the other way around where they have to work for my tips..
