Why would anyone want to dress in jeans for dinner anyway when it is suppose a nice dinner? Guess it takes all kinds and people with no class.
I guess you didn't get the jest of my post. I would probably expect the head waiters to refuse entrance to people dressed in jeans & T shirts on a formal evening BUT at 9PM & later the dining rooms are winding down for the evening with a few stragglers finishing their dinners.
We eat early and just went back for dessert on a few different occasions and sat by ourselves at a table for 2. At that time of night you could have been dressed anyway you please & have been seated. They were more interested in cleaning up the DR for the next day along with serving the remaining people to get them out.
Perhaps I should have redressed in formal clothing for the late night dessert to satisfy some folks.
