Went to Buona Forchetta in San Diego tonight. I will never go to this restaurant again.

This evening I used the men's bathroom because the women's bathroom was occupied. I noticed that all the signs in the bathroom were about Victorian bordellos, and specific services that could be purchased at these places, bordellos that specialized in virgins, etc. Ewwwwww.

Even though the signs were intended to be amusing, are signs about sex trafficking funny? Not so much. If they had sex trafficking signs about men in the women's bathroom, would I then find them amusing? Mmmm...still not funny.

If they're going for an "outdated and offensive" look, perhaps they could do a series of old-time posters of slave auctions next.

I felt excluded enough to never want to go to this restaurant again, and to tell everyone I know that they might want to reconsider too.

I'd be more concerned that you used the men's room because the women's "was occupied". To borrow your characterization, "Ewwwwww." BTW, funny signs? No. Historical signs? Most definitely.

As a South Park resident, Buona Forchetta is my go-restaurant if I get there early enough. They don't take reservations unless there are six people in your party. If there are just a couple of of you, get there at 5. Or go on the weekends, because it's never crowded for lunch, just dinner. So why do I like this place? The food is awesome. The owner is originally from Italy, and his mother helped him with recipes. He's been in business since February 2013, and it's been a hit ever since. Buona Forchetta now has an awning, so half the patio is now covered.
