Linguistic Deductions

"Remain Heart is a funny name for a restaurant," I said as we approached this sign at Iidabashi station.

"Maybe they meant remain heartful," Tod suggested. In katakana English, heartful seems to mean 'loving and caring.'

"Maybe. But why is the picture a brain with a heart in it?"

"That's not a brain. It's a lettuce."

"Do you think they meant 'Romaine Heart'?"

"Aha, hearts of Romaine! Of course."

next week: deciphering the menu. stay tuned...
