A Manhattan model thought she was helping her career when she ordered a salad for dinner, but it ended up being one of the worst decisions she could've made.
Since then she's been through numerous painful procedures and lost out on modeling jobs. The restaurant, Public, reportedly promised compensation, but so far she's received nothing.
Now she's getting serious. Rommel recently filed a million-dollar lawsuit against the eatery, seeking unspecified damages.
The restaurant's owner questions the 2011 incident, saying it's unclear if she bit into a rock or a really hard lentil.
But it's not entirely crazy that an unwanted ingredient ended up in a New York salad: A customer at Pret A Manger came across a dead frog in her salad one afternoon last December. And another woman in Manhattan says she bought a kale salad from Guy & Gallard and found a lizard's head!!
