Jun 9th 2010 6:24PM Okay, so it may not be the exact same blurb as what the writer was referring to, but this was what I found. It was hard to find because THE SPECIAL IS ALREADY OVER, having been for a limited time last December.

This is an extravagant dish with foie gras on top of a tender beef sirloin, topped off with a truffle sauce. The side dish of mashed potatoes is also decorated with cheese to make the dish more appealing. Please enjoy the luxurious fragrance of the sauce's truffles and wine.
* For an extra ¥200 (about $2) you can add corn potage rice or bread.
This dish, using two of the three greatest flavors in the world -- foie gras and truffles -- is said to have been a favorite of the great 19th Century Italian opera composer, Rossini. We have selected the finest, most tender sirloin cuts of New Zealand beef, and grill them so they are still tender and juicy. The Périgord truffle sauce, made with demi-glace and fon de veau sauces as its base with truffles and red wine added, further enhances the sirloin and foie gras.
Jun 9th 2010 11:34AM Thank you for your intelligent and well-informed reply! I totally agree -- the smallmindedness of most Americans is pathetic and pitiable.
Jun 9th 2010 11:32AM The writer has obviously never been to Japan. If she had, she would know that Denny's over there has an entirely different atmosphere and level of cuisine than over here. It's more comparable to what you might expect of Red Lobster or other high-end restaurants in the States.
If I can find the original page that was translated VERY BADLY and undo all the garbling that translation software does, I'll post what it actually said here.

"Often people peruse a job for no other reason than it is available..."
They "peruse" a job? They only read about it?? No, they "pursue" a job!
I should be hired as an editor for AOL news!!
