Blackboards with a prix-fixe menu are typically seen posted outside restaurants abroad, but increasingly the option and trend for dining from a set menu at a set price is appearing here as well. Diners can relax and experience whatever the chef creates that evening, released from making choices à la carte — and better able to pace their meal and estimate the bill.
