“Good cooking takes time. If you are made to wait, it is to serve you better, and to please you.”

Menu of Restaurant Antoine, New Orleans.

This quote used to be printed at the top of the menu of Restaurant Antoine, the oldest French fine-dining establishment in New Orleans. The quote was made famous by the timeless The Mythical Man-Month book by Fred Brooks.
