Some restaurant water tastes like it's picked up something from being kept in plastic or metal pitchers, or maybe from being on a city water supply. Maybe it's their ice machine. Or an odor left behind by their dishwashing soap or by the food around it, especially when plastic pitchers of water sit out at drink stations near the kitchen for a while.I agree with your explanations as to why the restaurant's water may taste bad, but I still don't think I'd drink it. I'd probably go back to a soft drink.When I got out of the Army the first time I was honorably discharged in NYC and went into a greasy spoon restaurant nearby. I watched as a counter waiter put a half full glass of water next to the sink behind the counter. The dishwasher filled it up and put it on the counter in front of me.The owner/manager(?) came over, grabbed the glass and had some angry words with the dishwasher.Desert (avoids greasy spoon restaurants now) Dave
