I think the objections (not by Wilfrid, he never said that) to unreal restaurants are a mixture of an objection to this idea and an admiration of business success that leads to a rejection of projects that are clearly not fully formed businesses (Roberta's tasting table, Frej)
I am struggling with this sentence. Maybe too many negatives.
Why does anyone think I have any objection whatsoever to Frej? Truly bizarre (if that's what's being said here).
It must be a linguistic issue.
It seems like AB, Adrian and myself are convinced that statements by Wilfrid, oakapple, and others are overall negative and describe Frej, as well as a host of new-paradigm restaurants as unreal, cheating, enjoying a lower level of difficulty, inhospitable, evoking less than positive feelings (wrt reservation systems, imaginary jam jars, seating arrangements) and so on. In addition, there seem to be alternating accusations that these are not real businesses on one hand, and that their operators are scheming to maximize profits by convincing the unwashed that butchering their own food and eating it off paper plates in the dark is kewl on the other hand.
If these convictions are completely off the mark then we can save a lot of time.
