Yesterday, we took a break from the Sailboat Show to lunch at an Annapolis restaurant that features a buffet. It was early and we were among the first patrons. The buffet featured a nice selection of seafood along with the usual fried chciken/baked chicken. One of the items was crawfish. As I went to the buffet line with my plate, I saw a woman leaving with her plate piled high with nothing but crawfish. There were maybe 6 left in the tray.
So, it raised this question:
What’s your take on restaurant buffet lines?[ul]1. Great place to sample lots of different things.
2. I paid my $9.95 or whatever - I’ll take as much of whatever I want, dammit.
3. I really, really like those crab legs - I won’t take them all at once, but I’ll go back until I’ve had enough.
4. Buffet? How plebian![/ul]Personally, I lean toward #3. Much as I love a particular food, I won’t be so selfish as to take it all as soon as I get there. And, with a little bit of #1 - it’s nice to have a big variety to sample.
