Victoria and Alberts: Crazy Fear
I just booked a reservation at the Poly to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary in June. (Yay!) We are thinking of sending our kids for an evening at the Neverland Club so we can have a grown-up dinner with no shouting, food throwing or sun/heat/exhaustion related meltdowns.
DH really wants to go to Victoria and Alberts and I totally do too but I am sort of, kind of afraid of it. No one who knows me would guess it based upon our habits but I am a closet picky-eater.
DH and I work in a major metropolitan area and eat in all sorts of trendy and fancy restaurants for lunches and the occasional child-free dinner. However, they all have large menus and I can order whatever I feel like and avoid the long list of things I prefer not to eat which includes: mushrooms, most kinds of seafood, any meat from animals I think are cute (bunnies, lambs etc) and a million other little things.
I have this idea that everything at V&A is super fancy and I am going to end up with caviar-coated foie gras and rabbit sausage with morel mushroom ragout as my only options. I will then spend the entire evening picking at my $200 dinner and be looking for a snack immediately after.
Are there options that I will be able to select from and have a great experience? Just so I am clear, I LOVE great quality food prepared excellently and presented with superb service. I just like to be able to pick what I want and have it fit within my pretty narrow box of acceptable options.
Am I completely off-base? What kind of experiences has everyone else had there?
Thanks for your help!
