Philip Given, who is mentioned in the story, suggested the tot angle months ago.
Naturally, I love weird stories. I, too, experienced the hipster tot phenomena on recent trip to DC, where we ate at Sticky Rice.
At the time, I had a hard time justifying the tot trend locally. I couldn’t find a fine dining establishment in York County selling the fried hashbrown treats.
Last month, the Left Bank put a variation of the cafeteria staple on the menu, complete with smoked salmon and rich cheeses.
So, the story had to happen, complete with a Napoleon Dynamite sidebar.
When I called the Burning Bridge in Wrightsville, the man who answered the phone actually thought my inquiry about tots was a prank phone call.
I’m basically used to it by now.
