Someone should be fired for thinking this was a good idea.

None of the food is properly accessible. They are also forcing you to either unpack the damn thing to eat everything together, or just eat one food item at a time before moving on, which isn't much fun.

I hope whoever shoved all the food in there was wearing gloves or something. There's a lot of food grabbing going on here to get that in.

Time to flip that napkin over

Soggy chips are nothing now

Unable to reach those chips or even get the fucking burgers out . Thats a different level

I might be able to stand a large bowl like this for shared food. But not with everything else

Someone should be fired for thinking this was a good idea.

I think you mean executed.

this is literally the stupidest thing I've ever seen

can I just say... that is a ridiculously small amount of food... and 30% of it is radish...

"It's $32 and it's not stupid!"

I irrationally want to punch whoever made this.

I can’t imagine how much the chefs budget must be to serve a desert on an iPad that has a picture of a plate

This is the most pretentious thing I've ever seen. Bravo.

How do you even wash that after?

So u mean it's pretending to be luxurious but it's got more in common with a McDonald's tray paper?

"It's an 'app', get it?! Hahahahahaha-" /sound of gunshot

the Chef, probably

The 40 years of bald guy smell is freeeeeeee!

This photo was probably not taken this week or taken by OP but it’s not a fake. The use of a €120 Camper shoe (nice Spanish brand) made me suspicious so I googled it and it turns out it was a thing.

From the Washington Post:

“The irrepressible chef first started serving little fried things in an actual Camper shoe at his restaurants in Las Vegas and Los Angeles. Apparently, the L.A. health department decided to put its foot down over the practice.”

This is what bothers me about all these un-plates. The cooks shouldn't be waiting for the health department to notice that they are serving food in something that can't be sanitized. It's flu season too.

You’re right that it wasn’t taken this week, it was taken by my wife several years ago though. I just came across it while going through all of our old pictures and figured /sub/wewantplates would appreciate it.

Who doesn’t love dessert in a box?

WTF is being served in the picture on the right

As hard as they're obviously trying to give a good presentation by serving everything in nests inside office furniture, the food in that picture on the right still looks absolutely disgusting. I'm sure it tasted nice but it looks like someone's already enjoyed it once and twice on the way back up too.

Delightfully toasted cheese. A pretzel stick in a log was included on the side.

I'm sorry but it looks like the cat crapped on your food.

Also, I don't think this is how bento boxes work...

Just had a mod bring me some napkins at Brick House.

fuck the napkins, I'll wipe my face with a plate

That's the joke, they are poking fun at how obsessed this subreddit is about plates

shhh little bit of meta posting never hurt nobody

The Brick House has an epic beet salad. Came on plate, can confirm.

This is literally a piece of wood.

Rule #3: submissions must be items that were served in a restaurant. This doesn't belong here.

Besides, this isn't a plate, its a serving platter, which is a different thing altogether.

OP isn't lying or faking it - Target.

It's not simply a 'piece of wood': It's a Round Rough Edge Platter for only $16.99! It's better then a piece of wood!

"Bring a rustic and stylish touch to your table with this Acacia Serving Platter from Threshold. Made of strong acacia wood, this serving platter brings a gorgeous natural appeal to your dinner table and makes an exquisite centerpiece."

Gorgeous natural appeal? If I happen to sit at a table with a fkn piece of a tree on it I'd definetly evaluate if this is gonna be a nice meal or I'm gonna get poisoned by strange psychopaths

Oh I've seen these. You can put a spare key in it and leave it by your front porch.

Did she order it "in the rock" by mistake?

I wonder how much bacteria is growing inside that.

It has a plate... BUT STILL.

Ear bones.

I actually could not eat the food hanging off a rat skeleton, that is the least appetizing way of serving food I have ever seen.

Did you know that dinosaurs had really big ears, but everyone forgot because dinosaur ears don't have any bones in them?

Edit: it's a reference to a show called Over the Garden Wall from Cartoon Network. It's a 10 episode mini series with 11 minute episodes. Well worth the time to watch it.

The fuck is wrong with chefs...

Cut the cheese in triangles...it plates nicer...

Cupboard desserts and snacks for tea! (They weren't that great :( )

Cupboard desserts and snacks for tea! (They weren't that great :( )

I am genuinely curious about how they'd ensure that this thing stays appropriately clean.

What if the waiter jostles it en route and some of that lovely chocolate ganache rubs off on the underside of a drawer?

Does that ever even get detected let alone adequately cleaned off of what I assume is fibreboard?

The drawers come out and are cleaned all over. I hope they'd paint it with a waterproof lacquer to protect the wood. While you couldn't submerge it, you could scrub it with disinfectant.

Were the best tasting ones "top drawer"?

I'll see myself out

This isn’t a bad idea but the drawers and placement of things are weird. So big and bulky that it doesn’t look that great.

A stacking bento box design would be cool for desserts or sushi but this looks like they picked up in the jewelry section of Walmart.
