Rural Living ~Why I Love Fine Dining~

Thursday, August 30, 2012

As a child, my Great Aunt Maxine used to send for me to spend a couple of weeks in New York. It was the mid-80s and early 90s when a little country girl from South Carolina got the exposure of a lifetime in St. Albans, Queens, New York. She made sure I was thoroughly exposed to the arts, culture and fine dining. I remember on my first fine dining experience was at Rockefeller Center. I was taken away by the buildings, statues and all the forks and spoons on the table!! Lol!

Throughout the years I’ve been other fine restaurants up and down the East coast. I heard once that Boston Back Bay Restaurants were awesome! The experiences were beyond my imagination. Fine Dining is the finest in service, food and atmosphere.  Why I love fine dining so much? Here’s why:

-Who doesn’t love a cloth napkin? I’m a collector of fast food restaurants napkins, especially in my car. They are epic and cleaning up after my kids but the cloth napkins at restaurants just lend a special touch also a pampering of the face!

-The Customer service is above and beyond par. Customer service in fine restaurants is welcomed after a many drive thru rant and raving with some cashier who didn’t even get your order correct! I look forward to the personalized service of my beverages , main course and dessert.

-I get used etiquette I haven’t used since I was debutante in 1995! Yes, your cousin, was a Ladies of Iris Debutante, presented in a Jessica McClintock for Gunne Sax in the finest ivory satin. I had perfect pitch with what fork and spoon to use. But you don’t get to put those skills on display at Chick Fil A.  Ms. Emily Post would proud that I don’t blow on my soup to cool it and I don’t stick a whole piece of bread in my mouth while out ‘dining’.

Do you like fine dining? What your favorite experiences with all the forks, spoons and glasses? What’s your favorite fine dining restaurant?  Let me know in the comments!
