didn't take long after reaching our table to sense that Farradday's
- in the Isle of Capri casino in Bettendorf - wanted to be
noticed. The place settings alone would have screamed "First
impression!" if decorum allowed. The silverware was polished to
such a mirrored shine that I was embarrassed to leave a fingerprint.
The stemware was likewise spotless - nearly invisible. Even the
water tumblers were as finely crafted as an eggshell. I appreciated
seeing a sea-salt grinder on the table that matched the
brushed-stainless pepper mill.
