why why WHY do nice restaurants always have TV's in their bar areas? WHY? What is the point?
With the exception of places like Mistral or Lark, I was shocked to see TV's at Palace Kitchen. WTF?
It appears that almost every place I've been to for dinner - BAM! There's a TV. It just doesn't make sense to me - TV's in a restaurant says "sports bar" to me. The last thing I want to see is some bloody sporting event on the tube when I'm trying to carry on a conversation or eat my meal. It's distracting and really, aren't we surrounded by enough technological shit as it is?
TV's - ok in your media room, living room, a sports bar or hell, any Irish bar for that matter, but in a nice restaurant? NO. Take those things out and replace them with some nice art. Or a blank wall.
