Where are the restaurants with standards?

What has happened to standards in our country?

A very few years ago if you wanted to a really nice restaurant for some special occasion, there was a sign on the door that said “Men must wear coats and ties” and women should be appropriately dressed.

I recently went to an upscale restaurant for a special occasion. My dinner was ruined. A group was seated at the next table. The men were wearing old shorts and soiled T-shirts. The women were equally as inappropriately dressed in unironed cut-offs or shorts. We might as well have scheduled our “special occasion” at McDonald’s or Carl’s Jr.

Please let us return to the days when you could still find a restaurant with standards.
