I always feel sorry for the staff having to clear all of these really oddly shaped plates/boards/baskets. They never seem to stack as well as the good old circle plate. I've a friend that always orders muscles because he loves the fancy boot shaped bowl they are presented in at a certain restaurant.

The wooden boards are very fashionable for pub grub these days. They're ok I suppose but they can't be as hygienic as a good old fashioned ceramic plate. Chips seem to be served up in a little tin bucket pretty much everywhere now.

I can't imagine the boards are as easy to clean as plates.

Intuitively I agree. I always clam up around wooden chopping boards. You see someone hack up a whole chicken on one, then toss it under the hot tap with a bit of suds and a couple of seconds its supposed to be okay?

Have to agree about the cleanliness of boards - there's probably a horrible brown stain on the board before they plop the dinner on it.

You scrub them down with a metal brush. Chefs generally keep their kitchens in pristine condition.

My eldest works partime in a New York restaurant, he told me the staff get used to handling boards, slayes, baskets ect..
However, he prefers plates , he can balance more plates when serving and clearing away..

They'll never be totally clean though. :/

Oh they would! Kitchens get tested regularly by state bodies and can be closed down on the spot and unclean boards continually serving 5/6 people everyday would eventually cause an outbreak of food poisoning soon enough.

A good blast of 100 C water with detergent in the dishwasher will sterilise them.

Went to dinner last night and on the menu was 'hot stone steak', I asked what it was and apparently you are served a hot slate where you cook your own steak. I told the waitress that it was a terrible idea and I can do that at home myself.

That's nothing new, had it in Portugal years ago. My little brother loved it. I think it's pretty gross though.

Slates, plates, stones, tin cans or anything that makes our evening a little out of the ordinary usually goes down really well with me. For a more formal event though, weddings or the like, then it's fine china dining all the way.
