Re: Rules to eat by?
I get what they're going for, and a couple of those make a certain amount of sense. But what it comes across as is incredibly pretentious. Like they'd really rather only a certain class of folks come in, but they don't seem to get that the class of folks they wish would come in aren't interested in dining with them, and if by chance those folks did happen to stop in, if they were to try to move them to the bar area because they'd been sitting too long after their meals were finished (for example), they'd run their business into the ground inside of six months simply by mentioning it while getting their hair done or over a round of golf.
Me, I'd skip it. There are 847 places to eat in LA. They'd have to offer something a heck of a lot more special than what's on their incredibly limited, rather pedestrian menu to overcome their overblown sense of self-importance and make me walk through the door.
