Diner Who Ordered Artichoke But Didn’t Know Hot to Eat It Sues the Restaurant

On Point:  “A Florida man who says he was injured from eating the leaves of a grilled artichoke has filed a lawsuit that may test whether a restaurant has a duty to explain to patrons how to eat unfamiliar food items.”  The complaint alleges that the restaurant’s staff did not ask “Plaintiff whether he was familiar with how to eat ‘Grilled Artichokes’ or explain to Plaintiff that [the] outside portion of the leaf should not be eaten; rather, only the inside portion of the leaf was safely digestible.”
