I would be interesting in hearing people's anecdotes and experiences of restaurant going during this financial crisis. Does anything seem different? Are there restaurants offering deals? Are there restaurants that are compromising in one way or another -- skimpier portions, lesser or substitute ingredients, higher wine prices, whatever? Are there more or less available tables? Does the typical restaurant festivity seem there or not? What type of restaurant is being affected (or not) -- from the high end on down?
