A couple of years ago, I had dined at Dabbous. I only managed to get in at lunch as a last-minute walk-in. While it was good, I had only been able to dine from a fixed tasting menu. So I wanted to come back at some point for dinner and experience some of the dishes it had been featuring since its opening. I finally managed to get a dinner reservation. However, I did not realize that they had done away with the a la carte menu, leaving only a tasting menu or variations from that. I was told that about a year prior, they did away with the a la carte menu as very few people were asking for it, thereby wasting prep time and food resources.
Even though it was not the menu I was expecting, I still found several items interesting. And I certainly wasn’t going to give up the opportunity for a meal there, given that it was still a tough seat to get.
