"Insider's Table" @ Cheesecake Factory

Anyone part of the so-called "Insider's Table" at Cheesecake Factory?

What's the deal?

I originally signed up on a lark, and now I've got an invite to taste-test some new menu offerings.

Just wondering what other people thought about this Insider's Table thingamajig.

I sort of shudder that I could some how, in some sort of small insignificant way, determine what middle America considers to be cutting-edge haute cuisine ...

            CF has discontinued the program -- I got an email from them a month or two ago advising of the same, and inviting me to take a survey and they'd send me a $5 gift card in return. I did, and got my gift card a couple weeks ago.

      1. jfood's had a tough day and this brought a smileto his lips. what a wonderful idea of getting real people to give market research data to CF. Not for Jfood but he wholeheartedly endorses anything that makes for a better eating experience.

        1. Ipse, you have been given a wonderful chance to make a change. As the result of this marvelous opportunity, Cheesecake Factories nationwide could soon be serving xiao long bao, tendon soup and hand-pulled noodles!

            Actually, with CF it'll probably be like ...

            XLB with guacamole

            Beef tendon soup with Chipotle sauce

            Hand-pulled noodles served in a tostada bowl

          2. Did they make you wait an hour-and-a-half and then call you on a pager to tell you about being selected?

            1. I'm in! Though not too much has come of it yet. I got the info to be able to logon to the website, etc.
