When you walk through the door, you are entering neutral territory where you are free to be whoever you choose for the duration of the meal."

The small policeman on the corner, the grocer with a bad eye, the people you walked to work with, in the shops, on the bus: the people you didn't know but who walked the same route as you, who wove the anonymous fabric of your life. Buildings, gardens, the roofline, one could describe their absence.
