...when you pry it from my puffy fingers.
New York Councilman Felix Ortiz wants to ban the use of salt in restaurants. That's right, ban it. And impose a thousand dollar fine for each sprinkle of fleur de sel that garnishes your plate-or shake of salt on your fries.
This is sort of like demanding that restaurants cook without pans or something. (It's okay, I can hold your gyro over the flames with my bare hands!) My only hope, and I know it's a long shot, is that Ortiz has never actually cooked any food himself. Hopefully this bill with go down in flames, but until then, I consider every salt sprinkle an act of defiance.
