I am appalled that you would rake the Derby Club at Derby Lane so badly! I have been going to Derby Lane for over 30 years _ also, I was employed there for four years, in the publicity and public relations department.
They have been known, and complimented, for their menu for years _ lunch, as well as dinner. I have taken friends and family to The Derby Club for lunch and dinner _ I have never heard a complaint.
You stated that their prices were high! Where can you get such decor, entertainment and pleasure for an evening?
I would like to add they have the "cream of the crop" with waitresses, bus boys, maitre d's, and parking attendants.
Why not leave your sour bets at home; and enjoy a very delightful evening of dining and wining?
Answer this: Why is it so difficult to get a reservation at the Derby Club?

A diner's dilemma
What in the world is a Chris Sherman?
Might be male, might be female but definitely verbose and indecisive! Lots of words. But the reader sure has to struggle to find if a restaurant is good, bad or indifferent.
Bring back Carol Kirschenbaum, bad taste buds and all! At least one didn't need an interpreter to figure out if she liked a place.
