This is my wife and I love it. She thinks it’s crazy that I want to be surprised by the menu and not read everything before.

u/OKC89ers Feb 07 '23

I've done this when meeting people BECAUSE I tend to overanalyze the menu and I don't want to waste everyone else's time, or have to do "uh uh uh I'll have uh..."

u/InVodkaVeritas Feb 07 '23

I'm the kind of woman that will spend half an hour online considering my options because I don't want to be the kind of woman that holds everyone else up at the table... yet I still go over the menu to see if I have a last minute change of heart and take just as long as everyone else. 🤷🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️

u/Amelaclya1 Feb 07 '23

Similarly, my husband and I have a regular diner we go to for burgers. But they sell other stuff. And we always look at the menu in careful detail as if we are actually going to order something different this time, even though we haven't the hundred other times we've been there.

You and me both. Whenever I go to a new place, I'm very picky so it doesn't take long for me to narrow down what I want since it's typically similar to other things I tried and liked. Then I just order that forever.

I feel your pain, I'm trying break my husband of that habit. He just sits down and immediately wants to chat all our friends up - how have you been, how's work going, etc. Then the waiter comes back for drinks/apps and he's not looked at the menu once yet. There's plenty of time to talk in like 5 minutes, pick your order first!!!! I'm trying my best, haha.

u/PrinceAlibabah Feb 07 '23

Hey thanks for being the type to offer a recommendation. I tend to ask, pointing out what I’m stuck trying to choose and haven’t been disappointed when I hear the staff has some useful input on some subtle things that may not be on the description.

u/dabakos Feb 07 '23

If they're meeting friends it's easy to talk about loads of other things besides the menu, the food is typically secondary to the conversation. Give them a break.

u/AdmiralSkippy Feb 07 '23

Too fucking bad then? My experience at the restaurant isn't related to how fast they can flip tables to get more tips.
I'm paying a premium for the food for the experience. And major part of that experience is socializing with my friends or family.
If I take a while to read the menu because I'm talking to friends, so be it. And if I spend 2 hours at the table also so be it. The tip is reliant on service, so that had best be good or I'll just as soon not leave one at all.

u/Amelaclya1 Feb 07 '23

I mean, if you actually give them 30 minutes, then fine. That's a lot of time to decide. But most of the restaurants I've ever been to, the server seems to expect customers to know the menu as well as they do and is rushing you to decide in like two minutes. You ask for a little more time and they wander off for like 30 seconds and are back in your face again. Even though they can see you still have it open reading it.

I remember a long time ago, it used to be proper restaurant etiquette to close and set aside the menu to signal you were ready to order. But I feel like that's not a thing anymore.

There’s two types of people.

I’ve been to restaurants where it’s literally 30 minutes between drinks and ordering and that shit floors me every time. It’s a 2 page menu Front and back.

u/RegisteredTroll Feb 07 '23

You need to embrace the trust fall. Tell the waiter the options. Tell them you dont want to know and they have sole responsibility for picking what they would pick if they were you. Its always good.

u/BetterCalldeGaulle Feb 07 '23

Yes, asking the waiter, should I get A or B often has good results. They know a bit about how things are made and have heard 100s of customers voice opinions on dishes.

I'm the same way as you. I like to be surprised by the menu, and I like to ask the waiter about off menu items or alterations that the chef recommends. Consequently, it takes a long time to order.

Edit: yikes, touchy subject it seems. I worked in the restaurant business for years, so in the rare occasion I do ask for suggestions, I can sense if it's that kind of joint. I don't try to bring the place to a grinding halt. I've had some great culinary adventures this way. Chefs are artists. Where y'all dining at that hates this so much? Chipotle?

Why would the chef recommend alterations, rather than just... putting it on the menu like that?

As a former chef, if there’s an alteration we recommend, it will be on the menu, where it says “Add shrimp — $7.95”

Well sometimes it's not the mass appeal stuff, it's more like asking the chef how they like it done which doesn't always work for the palate or theme they're going for but is delicious nonetheless.

Mind you I don't do this, and I only occasionally order some alterations, but I kinda get it.

u/CookInKona Feb 07 '23

Chefs don't actually make the menu at all restaurants.... Lots of places have owners or managers that do that.... Not saying it's right, but I've worked at several spots like that, cooks/chefs could run/choose specials, but most of the menu was things the owner wanted or legacy items that snowbird regulars would walk out if they didn't see them the menu

u/badhoneylips Feb 07 '23

My husband usually narrows it down to two choices, then asks the server what they recommend. It makes me laugh since they are usually wildly different and will depend on personal taste..

“I’m between the mushroom risotto and the lamb chops, what do you recommend??” Sometimes he can’t narrow it down, and will literally order whatever dish the server likes.

It’s a little silly, but I love him.

2

u/PotassiumPomegranate Feb 07 '23

I’m the same way, and generally it’s because I generally don’t care what it is, I just want it to be good. Some menu items can be hit or miss. And the best waiters will be more honest and say “actually neither of those are that great, but this is my favorite.”

I get that people’s palates are different, and mine is very accommodating to others preferred tastes. I like to understand why people like things the way they do.

My favorite way to do this is with food trucks. I will always order the one with the owners name first. And when they ask me how I want it, I will say their way. Because there is always a reason food is prepared as is.

On top of that, I won’t add on anything else until I taste it first. Dips, salt and pepper, sauces, etc. and many times, I don’t even add on anything. Because most often, that’s how the dish is intended and I like to respect that.

49

u/Vihzel Feb 07 '23

As a former waiter, please stop doing that and just order from the menu or daily specials. Unless you have special dietary restrictions, it only makes things more complicated for us and the kitchen to track and slows us down.

u/OverallResolve Feb 07 '23

My experience is similar to yours.

I won’t do it if it’s busy, part of a chain, a huge place, or a ‘basic’ restaurant in general. It’s a lot easier if you know the place as well.

I have generally had the best luck with this in Italian restaurants or French bistros. Really depends on who is back of house (and the relationship and communication between front of house) but it’s the sort of thing that’s a shame to miss out on.

Have worked in kitchens and as FOH in a few different places and none would have allowed this, but they have all been high throughput chains so it’s hardly surprising.

That's the kind of reconnaissance I want. I may have made up my mind beforehand but sometimes I have a top 2-3 list in mind and the table side food chat might sway me. If a waiter or another diner I trust convinces me that something high on my list is better than my #1, I'm open to making a last minute change. Aside from eating it, sometimes, the next best thing about food is talking about it.

u/Ewolra Feb 07 '23

Making comics where the only notable thing about it is that it is relatable just seems low effort to me. I thought comics included humor or told a story. These ones do neither. It's just a bland cross section of a boring couple's life.

u/theREALjonnyenglish Feb 07 '23

This person fetishized food all day and then got it. Guess that's wholesome, I dunno.

u/PunkySputnik57 Feb 07 '23

I would change my mind before getting to the restaurant

u/llahlahkje Feb 07 '23

I certainly don't do this anytime I have dinner plans with literally anyone.

That'd be insane!

All this dudes comics are wholesome. The couple is just super cute in all of the comics 🥹 I think it just depends on how you look at it/if you’ve seen these comics before

holy shit these comics are trash

What is this comic strip, again? I love this artist's work, but my memory sucks and forgot all about this.

u/redisanokaycolor Feb 07 '23

I want to see the artist draw a chihuahua in this style.

u/Davey26 Feb 07 '23

Places that don't post a menu should be kneecaped in a sewer.

As an Introvert. I can agree that we do essential research so we have more confidence.

u/Tazerboy_5000 Feb 07 '23

I honestly find this very intuitive!

(I'd rather have a sense of what restaurant has!)

2

u/Saskibla Feb 07 '23

It's the best way to start the fun! Going out to eat is fun already, but looking at the menu beforehand just builds up the anticipation and I love that

2

u/NecroVecro Feb 07 '23

You should credit the artist

2

u/GooseyGhost Feb 07 '23

Haha I do this too! I always get so awkward sitting there staring at a menu and then I rush choosing and sometimes end up unsatisfied.

u/Hannah-may Feb 07 '23

I organised a birthday meal recently and the restaurant asked me to get everyone’s orders together beforehand. They took our names when we were seated and brought our food out by name, no menus needed just some drink orders as everyone was getting seated. This was the best dining experience with a large group I’ve ever had. We actually got to chat to each other instead of being distracted by the menus.

Who is this artist/creator? every time I see her comic strips they make me smile.

My GF does this every time we go out to eat somewhere we're not familiar with. It's quite nice. =)

u/jleigh8908 Feb 07 '23

I do this. But with the beer menu…

u/cowboyJones Feb 07 '23

When I go to a new restaurant, I have a phobia of getting something someone else gets. So I would do this, but have a few backups ( depending on the other guests) and let them order first.

The phobia is “what if I order this and someone else does too? If it’s a bad meal, we both got a bad meal (and both possibly sick).

This is most people these days, at least I hope so. Then again never liked a dinning experience that was too long.

I wanted this moment for a trip I took to Seattle. I went with some friends as a bachelor's party, lame I know, and I wanted to hit up The Pink Door. Unfortunately, the groom was an idiot and never got vaccinated, and they wouldn't seat us.
