I don't see why people go to the specialty restaurants... the regular dining hall is freaking upscale and formal itself!! Not to mention the excellent food!
Obviously, you've never eaten in one of the specialty restaurants - if you had you would have to admit that the food quality is head and shoulders above anything served in the main dining room. The food there may be adequate, but definitely not excellent.
