Neither did I.
However, according to the new rules introduced at one of our local gastro pubs it is.
We were dining "gastro" last night, and had a sharing dish to start of olives, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and good quality warm ciabatta.
Rather than make complete pigs of ourselves, we left some bread and asked the waiter if he could "doggy bag" it.
It seems that the gastro pub's interpretation of health and safety laws now views the taking of food off the premises (including bread) as a threat to the diners' health and safety.
"We cannot risk anything happening to you because you consumed food prepared here off the premises".
I have dined in weird, wonderful and crap establishments around the world over gazillions of years (see Restaurant Reviews), and I have never ever been told that before!
