I was just talking to my wife about this. I'm kinda over big, technically-perfect tasting menus. It just all starts to blend together. I appreciate them, I am glad I've done the ones I have, but I don't really feel the need to do a bunch more.
Now, I do not like small plates, so I'll disagree there. But I'm getting to the place where I'd much rather have 2-3 well-executed courses at a neighborhood type place than a dazzle of 15 plates of technical perfection.
Related, the wife and I went to Battersby and had the full tasting menu this week and were not impressed. The food was great, but it was trying to be something that it was not, and honestly, I don't think I'd go back--especially given how difficult it is to get in there and how the service just doesn't seem to give a shit.
