The Virtual Gourmet Asks: Are American’s Intimidated by Fine Dining?

Are we just a more casual society or are Americans actually intimidated by all the trappings of a FINE DINING experience? John Mariani, internationally respected Food & Travel Writer and publisher of The Virtual Gourmet, talks about the elements of a Fine Dining experience and why Americans don’t seem to support many such high end restaurants (beyond the prices involved.) It’s an interesting discussion with comparisons to European culture and cuisine and will make you think about what you value as great food and great dining!
