–Good morning, sir. Would you like to sit over there, near the window? –Yes, thank you. May I look at the menu, please? –Of course. Here it is. –Well, as a starter I’ll have some cabbage salad. –I see. Have you chosen anything as a main course? –Frankly speaking, I can’t make a choice. I am not sure. Could you help me? –If I were you, I would order our specialty of the day. It is worth tasting. –What exactly is this dish? –Pork with mushrooms. –I am afraid pork is not very good for me. –So I’d like to recommend fish under white sause with vegetables. –It suits me. And I am going to take some fruit salad for dessert. I like fruit. Is there such a dish in the menu? –What about drinks? Here is the wine list. –Thanks. Well, I’ll have some Italian white wine. And some drinking water, please. –Here is your order. Bon appetite! –Waiter! I am paying. How much is it? –Forty dollars, sir. –Do you take “American Express”? –Of course –Here is your tip. –Доброе утро, сэр. Не желаете ли сесть вон там, возле окна? –Да, благодарю. Можно взглянуть на меню? –Конечно. Вот, возьмите. –Ну, на первое я возьму немного капустного салата. –Понятно. Вы выбрали что-нибудь на второе? –По правде говоря, я не могу сделать выбор. Я не уверен. Не могли бы Вы помочь мне? –Если бы я был на вашем месте, я бы заказал наше фирменное блюдо дня. Его стоит попробовать. –Что именно представляет собой это блюдо? –Свинина с грибами. –Боюсь, свинина не очень мне полезна. –Тогда я бы порекомендовал рыбу под белым соусом с овощами. –Это меня устраивает. И я собираюсь взять немного фруктового салата на десерт. Я люблю фрукты. Есть ли такое блюдо в меню? О, да. –Как насчет напитков? Вот список вин. –Благодарю. Пожалуй, я возьму какое-нибудь итальянское белое вино. И немного питьевой воды. –Вот Ваш заказ. Приятного аппетита! –Официант, я оплачиваю счет. Сколько с меня? –Сорок долларов, сэр. –Вы принимаете “Американ Экспресс”? –Конечно. –Вот Ваши чаевые.
