I am noticing that a lot of restaurants in the SF Bay area are moving to a bread upon request policy and some even a water on request policy. I realize the economy may have made restaurants try to reduce the bread expense, but I am seeing it at high end restaurants and more casual places.
I can understand if a place doesn't want to drop a plate of bread automatically, but I think the nicer places should offer bread without having to be asked. But this no bread unless you ask at a place charging $75 and up for a tasting menu is a bit much.
Are places in other parts of the country adopting a similar policy?
