Great, another Yacht chef with a resume too blurry to read in Fort Lauderdale. $50pp with no beverage. Quite the Tuesday night bargain.
@Jason If Chef Andy's full resume is too blurry for you to read, you should get glasses before commenting on that which you are unknowing.
I'm not sure where you usually dine. But, a four course meal, prepared by a creative chef, (not a short order cook at a national chain), including tax, tip, and corkage for $50 is reasonable. And, the ability to bring our own wine instead of the $15/glass that is typical in many restaurants is an added benefit.
I do know, as I have experienced several of Chef Andy's creations. I had many meals at Le Bistro that were amazing.
At the Funky Food Club, the food is just the beginning. There is also, the anticipation, the attempt to determine what we are eating, the laughs, the banter, the comments, the other diners, and so much more. It is an experience and I look forward to it every month.
If you are looking for a cheap meal, just tell them to SuperSize that value meal. We won't miss you at the next FFC meeting.
@FFCFoodie The problem with LeBistro is that they declare themselves as being great and charge as much as anyone else in town before establishing themselves as being worth it. If I went to every restaurant that self-proclaimed to be great I'd spend a lot of money on a lot of really bad food. So skepticism is my first instinct. Besides, I dont want creative food. I want good food.
@appone To me, Arrogance is a chef who self-proclaims himself as "the best chef in Fort Lauderdale". The problem with the culinary scene in FTL is that it's restaurants are littered with ex Yacht chefs and recent culinary institute grads who learned presentation but who have no idea how to cook
My comment was based on the fact that yacht chefs have no knowable history, because they worked on someone's boat and not anyplace that was subject to public scrutiny.
While you may have a point about the culinary scene, at large, do you have any knowledge regarding Chef Andy that makes you want to label him this way?
