    supplement

    An attractive Italian woman is sitting on the neighboring table in a resto and is ordering smoked fish with rice and vegetables. What can you tell her?

    Ciao bella, how are you doing? May I recommend you a medium-dry 2016 Soave? With all my culinary experience I can tell it would certainly be the perfect .................. for your dish.

    Ciao bella, how are you doing? Pardon the intrusion but I frequently interrupt others dining here especially attractive women and I offer suggestions whether they request any or not. May I recommend for you a medium-dry 2016 Soave? With all my culinary experience here as a dishwasher I can tell it would certainly be the perfect complement for your dish. Perhaps we could share a bottle and later...…..

    What is a resto?

    I think that if the attractive Italian woman has more than two brain cells to run together, she will not have the slightest interest in the word you use to fill in the gap. By the time that you have got to the end of the part I have underlined, she will be regretting her choice of resto.

    And, if she is sitting on the table, do you really want to talk to her?

    Re: supplement

    Do228, your post reminds me of something ems wrote to you recently - Your posts are still very bizarre and bring up more questions than are initially asked.

    This time the main question is: Do you really think that we are going to help you find some way to make your unacceptable attempts to impose your undesirable presence on a female acceptable? Dream on.

    Re: supplement

    Here's how that would go if I were the unfortunate woman sitting at the next table. By the time you reached the words "With all my culinary experience, I can tell ...", you would hear from me "And from all my experience of creepy weirdos interrupting my dinner, I can tell you that the best thing you could do right now is f*ck off".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: supplement

    Perhaps her response could be to offer some mace or pepper spray to enhance Do228's culinary experience?

    Edit: Also, I just noticed the ironic similarity between Soave and suave....

    Hello, Do:

    I am sure that you are a very sincere person that/who likes to share your knowledge of food with other people.

    Because some people (especially women) may wonder why you are speaking to them, you may want to make your comments shorter and to the point.

    Perhaps something like this:

    "Excuse me, but I notice that you have ordered smoked fish with rice and vegetables. I have found that a medium-dry Soave is a perfect complement to that dish."

    The diner will probably answer (a) "Thank you very much for the suggestion. I will ask the server/waiter/waitress to bring me some of that wine" or (b) "Thank you for your kind suggestion, but I do not drink wine."


    *****

    Thank you for teaching me that "resto" is slang for "restaurant" and that "Soave" is a wine.



    Best wishes

    In my opinion the best choice is complement. Partner and match are also possible, but the others don't work.
