Recently I have noticed that getting any or more bread at some restaurants is becoming both difficult and/or expensive. Last weekend at aKitchen we were served a very small bread portion and when we asked for more bread the waiter said in disbelief "You want more bread?". At Nonna's friendly small neighborhood Italian no bread is served on the table. In recent review here of Talula's Market a CH noted the extremely small portions served and the some what negative reaction when they asked for additional bread. Ok, perhaps bread cost more or is it more about too much bread no apps ordered. But really seems some restaurants are losing a bit of civility, hospitality and tradition. I am quite sure there are other more effective way to control food costs and still provide some bread. Is the "no bread" or dwarf portions a trend?
