Maybe it's because I live in Los Angeles, but there are very few restaurants that you can't go into in shorts and polo shirt. Yes, some of the older places have dress codes, but I have yet to be in any current restaurant that doesn't have people dressed casually. Personally, I dress up for dinner on formal night because it's the custom and expected, but I really don't care how anyone else dresses. I agree, I am interested in the quality of the food and the service. What someone else wears at dinner is as unimportant to me as whether you've shaved or gotton a haircut. I'm into the food and the table conversation. I don't have time to worry about what everyone else is doing. If it's not bothering them, it should'nt bother you.
