I don't see why I should have to spend $50 per person to get an interesting meal. Pasta dishes in particular are just boring, random noodle you can buy in tops with MAYBE one protein in red sauce possibly with cream.

Also, not a single restaurant serving an appealing risotto dish. And we wonder why everybody goes to Olive garden.

There is your problem right there. You don't have to go to the $50 restaurants around here to get amazing food. You can get amazing food going to a locally owned place and spend $15 a plate and get just as good of food as you would get in a higher end restaurant in a major city.
