...We Are Their Judges.
I am rather new to this board, certainly a foodie, my palate in development, and enjoy a variety of dining experiences. The postings I have read to date have run from interesting and informative to controversial and arrogant. Some on this board seem to feel that every restaurant needs to do it as well as the very best in Manhattan or Europe. I thought it was time to talk about what we really expect and want from restaurants and whether our tastes really represent Westchester.
There is fine dining and there is casual dining. When I went to Trotters (now closed) I expected, and always got, cutting edge, thoughtfully presented dishes. But I also enjoy a taco from Tequila Sunrise, a burger from Chat 19 and a dish of pasta from Louie and Johnnies. Do you share the sentiments of some on this site that think that every taco has to be authentic as they make it in Mexico, every burger utilizing prime ground meat and every casual Italian needing to hold up to the standards of Batali? If so, can the restaurants make it here?
