Fancy New Food!

The title expresses excitement. In reality, it’s rather sarcastic.

But I think there’s good reason. You see, a restaurant in Princeton, New Jersey, called Elements, is serving food which I imagine is supposed to be fancy. They use very unique ingredients (some of which I’ve never heard of), and their “seasonally driven menu” is different every day.

The pictures I have seen look… uh, well, original! It looks like they use a lot of flowers, which I’ve never been a fan of, but I can understand it. But then I also saw a dogwood branch in one dish. That was not very interesting to me.

I’m just wondering why we can’t keep normal food. I think if you try to be aware enough of what you’re eating and try to make it nutritious, there’s no reason to eat like this. I can’t imagine it tastes that much better, and personally, I might feel a bit stupid eating at Elements.

I also think that only the very wealthy/privileged can eat menus such as the ones found at Elements. A four-course menu costs $79.00. I’m glad we aren’t wealthy if you have to eat stuff like this! I’d rather just go into the woods and eat for free.
