First things first: yes, someone really did bring their dog into a restaurant. And yes, they really did place an order for that dog.
And honestly, this dog is eating better than us on our worst days.
The order was sent back to the kitchen as follows:
1 Beef Burger
And then had a few notes attached:
This is for a dog
No salt, no oil, no seasoning, no pepper
Absolutely plain, no toppings, no garnishes
No bacon, no pickles, no onion, no bread, no lettuce
No side salad
Just the plain pattie-this is for a dog
my friend is the chef at an extremely fancy nyc restaurant and this is an order he received today https://t.co/tA1fWWSOjo— Anna Silman (@Anna Silman) 1558999378.0
That dog just likes its meat.
There are some fun, quirky things about this order, such as the egregious number of times "type in" is listed:

@whenjontweets @annaesilman @gunnerpunner They really should've specified if it was for a dog— Tom Schroeder (@Tom Schroeder) 1559005537.0
Not to mention how seriously picky this pupper is.

@annaesilman @bugcounter Given that any dog would cheerfully eat half a rotting deer carcass then roll around in it, this seems a bit fussy.— Brendan A. Niemira (@Brendan A. Niemira) 1559002784.0
The only information available about this restaurant from the OP is that it is an "extremely fancy NYC restaurant."
But as there are 26,618 restaurants in NYC, and at least over a thousand of them are "fancy," we will have to keep guessing.

@annaesilman @thedirtbird I'm so confused. Wouldn't it be easier to just.... Cook it yourself?— Jeremy Hercules 🇧🇧🇵🇷🏳️🌈 (@Jeremy Hercules 🇧🇧🇵🇷🏳️🌈) 1559002530.0
@HerculesJeremy @annaesilman Or.... get dog food?— Lizzy (@Lizzy) 1559002562.0
We hope the unidentified pupper enjoyed his or her cooked meat. Next time, wouldn't it be easier just to bring your own dog treats? Then he can have it just the way he likes it. Or better yet, put that dog to work, and he can make his own meals.
