In the past I have had NO reservation letting the "kitchen" cook for us and letting the expert wait staff pick the wine. And I still do not. But recently I have been reading more and more about those that have not loved what the kitchen prepared. That is not to say it was bad, but more that they have certain favorites that they think are better. We will be a group of 8 this Saturday evening and I am thinking that maybe one of the best ways to proceed is to let all the Chowhounds decide what we eat based upon their personal favorites. Can people list their favorite dishes? I will then take the top 6 dishes and order for the group. The remaining 2-4 will either be decided upon by the group or the kitchen.
Thanks very much in advance for all your help!
