    Pretty sure it's not a new trend:

    They’re selling an experience. The element of surprise with chef’s choice can be part of the fun but it’s certainly not for everyone. I found at Carte Blanche they asked beforehand if there were any foods that you just don’t like and they were willing to adjust the menu. For us, it was a one and done experience even though we enjoyed our meals

    Given the limited seating ("Kitchen Table", "Carte Blanche", "Fred" and "2 Fools" are all maxed out at sixteen guests, I believe), I don't have a problem putting down a deposit to guarantee them I'll show or they'll, at least, recoup something for a "no show'.

    Some of the best meals we've had on the island have been this format... if anything, I'm wary of the big joints where everything tastes "bulk".

    I hope "Senses" is a hit!

    Still love that there is something for everyone! While this place may not suit my desires for a meal, there are many who will love it! I wish them the best!
