Actress Slams 'Pretentious' Three-Star Restaurant After Husband Eats Napkin

Actress Slams 'Pretentious' Three-Star Restaurant After Husband Eats Napkin
From Fine Dining Lovers - January 5, 2018

A British actress has publicly called out chef Martn Berasategui after her husband accidentally tried to eat a napkin at one of his restaurants.

Tracy Ann Oberman, whos appeared in the soap Eastenders, was dining with her husband Rob at Berasteguis eponymous three-Michelin-star restaurant in Lasarte-Oria, Spain when the couple were presented with an inflatable napkin inside a stone receptacle. At some point, its not quite clear when, Rob, thinking it was the next dish, started to nibble on the napkin in front of horrified staff.

My husband tried to eat the white thing. I mean cmon. Isnt everyones napkin inflated with water then served in a wooden medieval stone???? said Oberman in a Tweet.

Oberman tweeted several dishes during what was a bemusing meal for the couple, tagging We Want Plates, the Twitter account dedicated to bizarre plating. She also tagged Berastegui, who currently holds eight Michelin stars, in one tweet, telling him that the food was "exquisite," the presentation "a tad pretentious," and the staff "so patronising."
