“Everyone’s like ‘Would it kill you to put a bowl of pickles on the table?’ and I’m like, I don’t see why I should have to give them away. We make them ourselves, and if people understood the time, patience, and skill it takes to make these things, they wouldn’t complain that there’s no pickles on the table. They’d understand why we charge six or seven dollars for a plate of assorted pickles.” —Noah Bernamoff of Mile End [BlackBook]
