I am a chef at an Bistro Italian restaurant, and aside from the fact that is clearly not a Caesar salad (pine nuts? shredded cabbage? Water sprouts?? Tomatoes???)it breaks a bunch of basic rules of plate presentation. First mistake was that you should never plate something that you have to disassemble or un-plate to eat, and to me it looks like it would be an exercise in futility to attempt to eat this dish without making a huge mess.Its exaggerated unnecessary.You don't know who has ordered the dish, whether its a 10 year old child or an elderly man, it shouldn't be a hassle to eat it! (that's why I always pass on crab legs, same idea) Second, very sloppy color coordination to the palette. I'm assuming he was thinking green/red (romaine heart and sprouts/ tomatoes/cabbage) but aside from the romaine and the actual dressing, these items simply don't fit the palette of the very dressing its topped with! It looks very thrown together and lazy. Third, it just looks freaking stupid. It is a half-assed attempt by some line cook working at a high end restaurant who doesn't care, or works under a chef who doesn't care or have real talent. Get on my level!
