A prominent Maltese chef has shared images of five people he believes “dined and dashed” from his St Julian’s eatery.
“These five Italian duturi yesterday pulled a dine and dash at my restaurant,” Sean Gravina said today. “I am not interested in getting what they stole back, I’m only interested in advising the restaurants in St Julian’s about them.”
In the photos, five men can be seen eating near a table covered in plates, with some eating burgers and fries. In the final image, at least three of the men have left, with the final two caught mid-movement, right before leaving the premises.
“If anyone recognises them call the police. Again, not for my sake, but for others.”
Gravina pre-empted any comments about protecting the alleged thieves’ identities.
“For the Karens and Nancys coming with the comments of data protection or any other bull comment get in line in a single file please and no skipping, OK? Behave! They lost that right when they stole,” he said strongly.
The prominent chef and restaurateur emphasised that stealing from eateries is seriously not right, and only leads to staff and employers suffering.
“Restaurants that are working hard to earn a living, restaurants that deserve to get paid for what they serve,” he said, ending with a slight spin on his famous catchphrase: “Good morning on a slightly angry morning”.
