"It's a free-for-all, and you get the fish mixed in with the sweetbread mixed in with octopus. Nobody cares what the dish number is anymore, so it ends up across the table. By the time you get it, it's a smudge on a plate."

Restaurateur and Top Chef host Tom Colicchio quoted in a New York Times story about the rise of small plates after he eliminated main courses from his restaurant Colicchio & Sons and acknowledged he's mulling the possibility of eliminating them at his other restaurants.
