Setagaya is not that busy and that's crazy

We ate at Setagaya tonight so that we could pick up the umbrella I left there Sunday night. They were really nice to save it for us.

Both times the place was almost empty. I don't understand why. I mean, I don't want to complain about not having to stand in line, but I also don't want them to close up shop. They had the full 3 waitresses. That's how many they have on packed nights. And on Sunday Mabel caught one of the cooks practicing his ramen straining skills. Without even a colander. She thought it was cute, but I think it was also so sad that they didn't have real work to do.

I thought maybe it was because Sunday and Wednesday are just not that busy, but Momofuku Noodle Bar was packed. I wanted to go in and tell the people waiting at Momofuku that there's a great noodle place down the street which is better, cheaper, and has no line, but they would have thought I was crazy. But they're the ones who are crazy.
