We had dinner last night at a BLT Steak and, as is typically the case in an upscale steak house, they had an a la carte menu. It occurred to me that I am not a fan of this type of menu. I prefer to have the chef create a meal for me (main w/ sides) rather than have to order a protein and then choose a side or two from a list. The sides are typically overpriced and the portions are too large and I hate getting my protein on a large plate - it looks so naked and lonely.
I suppose the menu is designed this way so that it has mass appeal. I'm just curious if I'm in the minority in not liking this type of menu.
