“If you’re really on a diet, drink water.”

more like FAKE-diet coke. real dieters drink water.

As part of a story about New York’s new breed of hard-line restaurants and cafes that are just saying no to uncouth plebeian requests like takeout espresso, taming the intensity of a spicy dish or making substitutions, Michael Costa of Pepe Rosso in SoHo justifies the omission of decaffeinated coffee, skim milk and diet soda from his restaurant:

“If you’re really on a diet, drink water,” he said, laughing.

He notes that a Pepe Rosso branch in Grand Central Terminal does allow Diet Coke, but only because the manager does not listen when Mr. Costa tells him not to. Snap.
