We've all been to so-called "fancy" restaurants where the chef serves food on a plank or a stone because they spent too much time on Instagram while planning their menu. Hell, even my mom has started serving her cheeses on a small chalkboard. It's too much, mom.
We've compiled 30 of the most insane ways restaurants have plated their dishes all in the pursuit of "gourmet." The problem is, none of this stuff is actually gourmet, and Gordon Ramsay probably wouldn't be seen 100 yards from any of these places.
So sit back, and thank yourself and your wallet for not spending hundreds of dollars on these ridiculous dishes that probably don't even taste that good to begin with.
