A few years ago, I went to the fanciest restaurant in town. It's in a historical building. I wanted to see around the building, and hang out and enjoy the place more than I was into the fancy food. So they walk us thru the restaurant full of well off looking older people, and sit us in a tiny room way in the back, where there are a couple younger people who look like working class locals. We left and never returned. The restaurant closed two years afterwards.
Even dummies like me know when we're being treated wrong.
On the flip side, at the local breakfast joint, the back is the preferred seating. You get some space, the cute waitresses hang back there when they get a minute, the temperature is stable. The front is too active. People always walking by bumping into you, doors always open, suns always beating on you thru the window, loud, etc.
As a general rule, I'm ok with sitting by the kitchen. But please don't sit me next to the bathroom.
