I am not a connoisseur of fine food. I'm also not a connoisseur of the word "connoisseur," but in this case, it fits.
Anyway, I think a lot of upscale restaurants are just overpriced, snooty and come up with exotic items that are no better than a good pizza. That's why I enjoy the Froo Froo Menu Generator.
Try it out. My menu at Cafe Expensivo included this:
Skinless Panda with Barrel-Aged Polenta
Crock Pot Pony with Scorned Fritter
Minced Kinkajou with Traumatic Chutney
Boiled Leopard with Flambéed Tart
Ground Eagle with Grapefruit Fritter
