Good Day, South Florida Foodies!
While all of us do not generally go into a restaurant with intentions of actively critiquing it, we do always hope to have a great dining, lunching, brunching or breakfasting experience. But, how exactly does one guarantee a memorable, positive culinary experience? Thinking back to the best times I have had at restaurants, I am surprised by how much was based on what I brought to the experience, rather than by the restaurant itself. I have always been a proponent of the idea that great eating is something that changes a person in some way- making their day fuller or their palette more experienced. However, is the change something that is already instilled in a person before said culinary event? It’s like the age-old question: Which came first; the chicken or the egg? In this case, I am beginning to think that enjoying the chicken and the egg depends heavily on what culinary attitude one brings to the experience. If I were to narrow down the factors that have ensured great, memorable eats, they could easily be counted on one hand.
