Right.  It's complicated when you go to a place like Frenchette (or, God forbid, Le Coucou) (no, that hasn't happened to me yet) with a group of four or six and everyone wants to share, and they all look at you like some kind of eccentric grouch when you say that they can but you won't.

 

i will say that at places like that in the twin cities (spoon and stable, for example) where we order individual starters/mains/desserts we do often take small bites/tastes from each other's plates. barbaric, i know.

we eat out in mid-sized groups a fair bit: groups of 4-8. when in restaurants whose food makes sense to share we do large group orders and share (with multiple orders based on guidance from servers). when not, we don't. this doesn't seem like such a complicated issue.
