DIDIER ....diddling around with waitorial foreplay

TOGardener | Feb 8, 2005 07:06 PM

My hubby went to Didier for a Biz-lunch today.
What a disaster......
the servers seem to be under the impression that they are working for a rather posh 4-star Michelin restaurant...would it only be so....
the "over-the-top" delivery of a cornish hen (with all of its tiny bones intact) on a bed of smashed potatoes would have made the Pope envious of the fuss'n'muss plate-presentation by the waitstaff....after the waitorial-foreplay, my hubby's guest stared at the actual delivery of a couple of rather mediocre 'barr-nakkid-hens' unaccompanied by any vegetables other than the aforementioned smashed tubers.

Hubby also asked for a small green salad unaccompanied by the prevelant "menu options" including exotic fruits, nuts, etc ....the waiter hesitatingly said that hubby not offend the (omnipescent) chef by varying from the given and extremely limited menu.

$100 later for two people (no booze) and they were very UNDERwhelmed

All in all, as a "business lunch venue" DIDIER makes a good "tyre service centre."
