OK, this isn't really "dining" but close enough - it is "after dining." Which would you miss more? The lack of a dishwasher, or the lack of a garbage disposal? I am thinking I miss the disposal more. I am without both right now (in my non-US place) and having the filter thing in the sink drain and having to empty it into the garbage is more annoying than washing the dishes. Of course, I'm not generating a lot of dirty dishes.
