I have a theory.
I think that restaurants can only be good at so many things. Meaning, if you go to a restaurant and it has a catalog for a menu, you are in trouble. If they serve anything from pancakes, pizza, stir fry to quiche, burritos, and hot dogs there is NO WAY they can be good at all that stuff. You are guaranteed a questionable meal.
If you are an Italian restaurant-- serve Italian. Stick to your theme people! If I sit down to eat and they hand me a menu the size of a phone book-- I'm out!
nobody's business. Jamba Juice, they do smoothies and oh can they do smoothies. Sprinkles, they do cupcakes and you know they do them well.
When a restaurant is bold enough to keep their menu limited you know they are serious about the quality of their product. They mean business and you are going to be happy with it.
I'm not picky-- I just want to be wow-ed by something good. Is that too much to ask?
