The Shrinking Water Glass

What is happening in upscale restaurants? Why have so many of them in recent years chosen to introduce new, smaller water glasses -- the kind that need to be refilled every 5 minutes?

This not only tests diners' patience, but it means larger restaurants constantly need to send a staffer around the dining space to refill water glasses. Not very efficient.

Restauranteurs, behold -- look at the photo above. That's the proper height of a real water glass. If it can't hold at least 10 to 12 ounces of liquid, then it shouldn't be used (or called) a water glass.
