I, too, am irritated with the "foam" movement.

In this day and age, restaurants need to be able to accomodate the reasonable dietary requests of their clients. One of our guests doesn't eat shellfish. Though there were many regular fish entrees listed, each one had a shellfish ingredient. We politely asked if the food could be prepared without the shellfish and were brusquely told "NO, the chef won't do it." We attempted to calmly discuss it with the staff member, but she was VERY dismissive and rude. Believe me, it would have been easy to sear the ahi or cook the monkfish without adding crab or shrimp.
Some people have religious dietary restrictions. Some have serious food allergies. It is insensitive for a restaurant to disregard the needs of its diners. The diner is the CUSTOMER and the restaurant is the HOST. When I go to a restaurant, I want to be treated hospitably, not as though they are doing me a big favor by serving me.
Alberta Street Oyster House does not have the luxury of being rude and pretentious. We returned to this restaurant after their re-opening to support them after their business struggles. If they want to succeed, they'd better examine their attitudes and learn to accommodate their clients.
I will NEVER return to this restaurant, and will discourage my friends from dining there as well.
