Everyone loves a nice fine dining experience. There are quite a few factors that combine to make an ideal fine dining experience. From the excitement of getting dressed up to go out, to choosing a new or favorite restaurant, to discovering a new dish or cocktail, going out to eat is a great way to enjoy the finer things in life. In fact you might just learn something about what you are eating as well.
Ask your server or a chef, if the restaurant is set up with an open kitchen layout, to give you some interesting pointers about your dish. You may find out something you never suspected, like the origin of those organic micro greens on your plate.
Enjoying your organic micro greens
Using organic micro greens in dishes is a creative way for chefs to bring a little something extra to the plate. They first appeared on fine dining plates around 20 to 30 years ago, and have been improving the dining experience ever since. There are many different types, but they are all basically small greens that enhance both the flavor and the aesthetic of the dish. Often, there will also be a more interesting texture to the perfect bite as well. Micro green varieties are generally rated for marketability on a scale ranging from one to five. Typically a restaurant will not serve any greens with ratings of one or two.
Loving the fine dining experience
Micro greens are not the only plants you might spot on your plate. Of course, it wouldn’t be out of the ordinary to see your standard vegetable dish, but a quality, creative chef will go beyond that to dazzle your eyes and your tastebuds alike. Don’t be afraid to branch out of your comfort zone! Think flowers are just for decoration? Think again! Did you know that there are around 100 different types of edible flowers? Not only are they beautiful, but they are delicious, too! These types of pleasant surprises often appear when you head out for a fine dining experience. But just because it seems exotic, doesn’t mean it has to break the bank. In fact on average, a visit to a restaurant for fine dining will cost each individual less than $30.
Naturally, if you are trying to save money, splurging on fine dining every night of the week is probably not a good idea, but if you keep an eye out in your community, you will likely find a good restaurant that is worth spending just a bit extra on every once in awhile. After all, it is about the enjoyable experience!
