Down below, where it might not be seen, JeffB does a nice mini-review of Charlie Trotters. (I especially like the, nothing to rave about nothing to complain about cuplet.)
Jeff states that the meal was a bit myth shattering regarding the lack of unusal food combinations at Trotter's. Now, I have never been to CT, but I have followed the many reports on the place.
It does seem to me, based on this Trotter following, that CT has toned down a bit over the years, with the odd combinations. That he has settled into a role as a great luxury dinning spot and not as a place for raving innovation. Also, what was out there a few years ago is now downright mainsteam. So, maybe it is not so much as Trotter changing as him not changing. Am I right?
Remember, for all Trotter all the time there's that other food discussion board.
