So I called to make dinner reservations and said it was for 8 people. I was told that 8 people was a group and would have to go through group sales. Group sales said it would be a prixe fixed,pre-ordered menu.
Thanks but no thanks. When I choose a restaurant, I want to decide when I get there what I will eat.
I'm sure Giada knows more about running a restaurant than I do but many times I have eaten in Vegas with 8 or even 10 people. We were never considered a group and in once case were given 5 separate checks (the horror).
Will have to try it when I don't have such an entourage.
