I was just curious about how CH'ers "game" their dining experiences for the better by the "chef-y" things that they do at a restaurant.
What are your tricks to maximize the CH-worthiness of a meal that seem "chef-y" (chef-like) to you. For instance do you travel with your own condiments, is there a trick in how you order certain dishes, or is there an important detail in how you garnish your meal at the table?
Or what have you observed other people do that you consider to be "chef-y".
I have a few myself, but wanted to just kick off this topic without biasing it towards any particular practice. This should be fun; looking forward to your input!
