Default Normandy

Anyone want to speak to the dress code in the specialty restaurant? Is it simply the same dress as the main dining room for that evening, or is it a specific minimum dress?

I believe the specialty restaurants are more formal. A coat and tie for men is a must and a nice dressy outfit for woman. A lot of folks have recommended that you make your reservation for a "formal" night so you are dressed correctly for the restuarant and so that you don't end up having three formal nights instead of two.

It's always formal... and it is not unusual to see men in tuxedos in the specialty restaurants, such as the Normandy. I've not even seen so-called "semi-formal" dress, i.e., sports jacket and tie. It's all been formal. And, IMO, that's the way it should be when your servers are in tails!

well.. actual dress code for all Celebrities specialty restaurants is semi formal.. (jacket and tie for the men). We have gone on semi formal nights to avoid double dipping the jacket and tie <G>, and try to stick to formal nights in the dining room because the "good stuff" is normally featured those nights.

Yep, Kuki's got it right. Tuxes aren't required in the specialty restaurants even on formal nights, although some people wear them and there's nothing wrong with that.

On the other hand, one look at the restaurant and those serving you and it's obvious that casual would never be appropriate for an evening there.

A coat and tie for the boys is always correct.

In fact, for those of us who don't mind climbing into a tux once in a while, but who think that three nights out of ten is a bit much, the alternative restaurant becomes a good option on the middle formal night. You can "dress down" to a suit or jacket and tie and have a great meal to boot.
