Substitutions during RW?
What are the chances of a restaurant adjusting their RW menuus? A friend made a reservation for us tonight at Union and after looking at the menu, one of the 2 app choices and both of the desserts contain tree nuts, a huge allergen for me.
Do you think they'd be willing to swap the dessert for one from the reg menu?
The RW menu entree choices look fantastic though.
the prices on the reg menu are cost prohibitive at this time.
and the RW menu looks better. I'll report back tomorrow and let you know.
DoubleMan, I've haven't had nearly the inflexibility in Boston that I had in NYC. I've never been unreasonably and tried to get them to change things that were baked in or intrinsic to the meal but in NYC I was refused dishes sue to "an interruption of the chef's vision".
I guess not springkling walnuts on a salad or pecans on dessert was not worth my patronage.
Most of the options on the RW are obviously chosen to be able to squeeze out at least some profit, however minimal, on those dishes for the price point quoted. I do not see too many Restuarants wanting to make substitutions of higher-priced ingredient rich dishes. Looking at the menu, I would imagine requesting no toasted pine nuts on the salad would not be an issue (although the soup sounds better to me anyway) but the desserts already have the nuts baked into the cheesecake crust and the brownie. Maybe ask if you can pay the difference (although not sure how that is calculated)? Good luck.
