There seems to be an epidemic of restaurants that are dispensing with regular dishes in favor of something “creative” to set them apart from other restaurants, particularly in the UK. The Twitter account We Want Plates collects incidents of food being served on weird substitutes like wooden cutting boards, flat caps, flower pots, wicker baskets, slabs of rock, and shovels. If there weren’t photographs, you’d think I was making that up. Is this a hipster thing?
I’ve seen some hot dinners served in skillets, and of course you expect a barbecue sandwich and onion rings to come in a plastic basket lined with paper. But I’ve never been to a restaurant where they just made up stuff to use instead of plates. Have you? -via Metafilter
