I agree. But as someone who has actually sold medieval dishes in
restaurants such as this one, I can suggest that, at least in theory,
there's probably less hit-or-miss and more consistent food quality
than we're used to seeing in the SCA (which is not an indictment on
SCA cooking, just, well, sometimes you get what you pay for in the
SCA, and sometimes you get more). If it's terrible, there's less
reason to be... umm... tactful about it. Then there's "fine dining"
service, which I, at last, rarely see in the SCA, plus a site that
isn't, say, a volunteer firehouse, and then there's the entire pacing
of the meal. Many non-SCAdians wouldn't sit still for two or three
hours over dinner (as much as chefs like David Bouley would have them
I'm thinking about this one, actually, since it's semi-local.
