Guess where I'm eating a bowl of lentil soup?

I have yet to find Middle Eastern/Mediterranean restaurant in Denver that serves a laudable lentil soup -- and that includes this thin, watery version that also arrived woefully underseasoned. I thought about pointing this out to our server, but given that her vocabulary was limited to a single phrase -- "No problem" -- a phrase that should be abolished from the English language, I pushed it aside and simply asked for the check, a request that was predictably answered with "No problem."

Can you guess where I'm eating?
