Dear all
Please kindly explain what's meant by "everything came in" in the following context, taken from "Margo Dowling" in "The Big Money" by Dos Passos:
Margie sat back in her chair, looking at the restaurant and the welldressed ladies and gentlemen and the waiters so deferential and the silver dishes everything came in and at Tony's long eyelashes brushing his pink cheek as he talked about how warm it was and the cool breeze off the sea, and the plams and the roses... in La' Avana.
Does it simply mean she was looking, among other things, at the silver dishes coming in [one after the other on the tables]?
