I loved everything about the food at Loring Place except perhaps the pizza crust, but then there are few that I do like. However as is the downfall of many restaurants, too many plates were brought at once and they barely fit on the table. While I have list of dining pet peeves, this one is so irksome because there is just no need for it to happen. Chef Kluger clearly has the experience to manage pacing of the kitchen. You know how big your dishes are and how large my table was, so at what point do you just tell the customer that they have ordered too much food? And if you know as a server that the kitchen is going to send everything at once, warn me and don’t make me place my entire order at once.
