BROOKLYN, NY—Despite thinking that they had witnessed 28-year-old Dean Rumergant at his absolute lowest Monday, employees of the Jade Kitchen 2 restaurant realized their error Tuesday afternoon, when the weary freelance designer entered the Chinese eatery wearing a single shoe and a clump of dried duck sauce in his three-day-old beard. "Oh my God," said cashier Lin Zhou, who added that she initially thought Rumergant was a patient from the nearby methadone clinic. "He wouldn't look at me or say anything. He just pointed to menu on the wall and walked away." According to employees, Rumergant waited for his order by slumping down in the corner and resting his head on a collapsed stack of menus.
