I am always in awe of servers’ memories when they offer to share the daily specials with my table and they are able to rattle off a lengthy list with in-depth descriptions of ingredients, preparations, and prices. Inevitably, though, my dining companion and I will have a conversation after the server steps away that goes something like this: Me: “That gnocchi special with peas sounded really good. But what was the other thing in the dish?” Friend: “I have no idea. Do you know what the whole fish she mentioned was?” Me: “Nope.” So, while I enjoy hearing a server’s informed descriptions of special offerings, I also like having something written to refer to. Which do you prefer? Weigh in on today’s dining poll!
