Being robbed of choice

Studying design in undergrad, I remember reading a quote about how "good design is when the user doesn't have to make any decisions that they don't absolutely have to".
Perfection at the end of a long day.  Burrata come to me!
I was thinking about this the other night when I was meeting a buddy for dinner at Cotogna, one of my latest restaurant discoveries.  One of my favourite things is when you sit down at a bar or restaurant and you want a glass of wine and your server will make the decision for you, instead of you navigating your way through a long list which, let's face it, is really just going to be a combo of looking for the type of wine you want and making sure the price isn't completely off the charts.  "Um, white... dry?" and they do the rest.  You can get back to catching up with a friend.

It's so good to be robbed of choice sometimes.

Burrata is most delicious when you're not making it yourself
