The latest in food-related revenge fantasies comes courtesy of Take Out, a short film about a waitress who’s driven to violence by her awful boss and customers. It’s hilarious, in part because it was filmed at Paulie Gee’s, a place whose eponymous owner is possibly the nicest man in Greenpoint. If you can’t imagine Paul Giannone menacing his servers with pizza dough or a knife fight going down in the dining room, this will open your eyes. Also, it’ll make you think twice before you joke that you “hated” your meal as your waitress clears away your empty plate.
