Do you have the menu list, or the reinstate lobster live action is a hearsay?

I see i see.
Well as usual, like most cafes *ahem....the EDGE....*, they love to mention logistics, seasonal catch, freshness as excuse to buy time and decide whether to put up their expensive seafood on the table.

For edge, it's the oyster. Cheat my feelings

They should have it since its in the menu. Last yr, they confirmed upfront no lobsters n its not the menu too. However, its always subject to changes lor, but i dun think tat Ritz will purposely say got lobsters when they dun intend to serve it. Their service stds n commitment to excellence quite impressive wor, not to mention its not worth spoiling their reputation ... i hope

I think got one time no scallops right? Someone reasoned with the manager that it's was on the menu.

I thought for Claymore case, menu did not indicate but newbie person who took your call said have this and that?

Think better to trust the menu more than what the person on the other line said because many people, including the chef, would have gone through the menu thoroughly first before being finalized and printed.

Wah, better post disclaimer incase someone say tat toons anyhow post got lobsters everyday

My whole post reads ...

Actually he said every night dinner also have, but fri n sat more likely. He also kept stressing its subject to changes, might be replaced by crayfish instead if not so fresh n due to logistic challenges, yada yada yada. Say until like tat, i also dunno how certain it is, so better dun say ... keep expectations low ... If have, its a bonus, if dun have, also will not be disappointed.

... it is precisely cos i am dubious of the veracity of his remarks tat i chose not to mention abt the lobsters.

Nope, it is indicated in the menu. Errr, considering the greenhouse menu can print red eye loin for like consecutive 2 yrs, you still have so much trust in menus?

Then again, maybe the menu is not wrong ... assuming the loin is from a cow with red eye .... lucky red eye is not a symptom of mad cow diease
