What’s the name of that restaurant?

An elderly couple had dinner at another couple’s house and, after eating; the wives left the table and went into the kitchen.

The two elderly gentlemen were talking, and one says: “Last night we went out to a new restaurant, and it was really great. I would recommend it very highly.”

The other man says: “What’s the name of the restaurant?”

The first man knits his brow in obvious concentration, and finally says to his companion: “Aahh, what is the name of that red flower you give to someone you love?”

The friend replies: “A carnation?”

“No, no. The other one,” the man says.

His friend offers another suggestion: “The poppy?”

“Nahhhh,” growls the man. You know – the one that is red and has thorns.”

His friend says: “Do you mean a rose?”

“Yes! Thank you!” the first man says. He then turns toward the kitchen and yells: “Rose, what’s the name of that restaurant we went to last night?”
