The view is nice, the food is steakhouse typical and the staff all have poles waaay up the no-no. If that's your thing then by all means enjoy.

Why is dining out such a big deal?

Some people are too special to catch COVID at a wedding, school, church, work, rally, protest of a rally, or the gym?

I'll eat in a tent, a shed, a leanto, a teepee, a Kwanzaa hut or a gazebo. But I won't eat in a yurt. That's just how I roll.

Just for the yurt of it...

That's just a "menu", isn't it? A tasting menu is when you get a succession of small portions of lots of things, with no choice.

Would you eat stuff in a box? Would you eat stuff with a fox?

Yeah, sorry, what I posted is a prix fixe menu, not a tasting menu.

But it gives an idea of what you're getting.

Big yurts are comfy.   With a big stove in the middle drawing air up to the peak and well-spaced seating around the edge, a yurt would have great airflow up and out.   It would be very safe to share with other couples and you don't have to shout to be heard.   Many campgrounds have yurts capable of sleeping a dozen or more campers and could easily be converted to seating for 20-30.

Reservations required in advance?

Look, I understand that Covid has changed the face of everything. But if I need to go out for dinner, it's because for one reason or another, my own kitchen exploits have failed. One doesn't plan on that happening.

Thanks. All such things are beyond my means - or at least beyond what I am willing to spend - so I go on hearsay.

"bedazzle its parking lot with myriad clear, covered domes..."

What's more, yurts are neither clear, nor domes, so yup.
