Excellent choice, ma'am

I'm curious to know how many of you - like me - are totally over hoity-doity dining. I find that much of what you pay for in up-market restaurants is being treated like royalty in an often much too sterile, uptight setting and presentation. Don't get me going on tall food. I know quality can be expensive, but I often find that as soon as the prices get higher, there's a kind of hushed atmosphere that prevails. Has anyone ever read David Rakoff's "Don't Get Too Comfortable" (The Indignities of Coach Class, the Torments of Low Thread Count, the Never-Ending Quest for Artisinal Olive Oil, and Other First World Problems) The second chapter is a hilarious must-read for all foodies who are over the hoity-toitiness of it all.
