Tru Dessert Tasting
I've given in to the hype and I'm making dessert tasting reservations at Tru for my party of six Saturday night. It's going to be my first time at Tru.
Given my Tru inexperience, what should I expect for for dessert? How many courses are there and how stuffed do you feel when you leave? I'm attempting to plan an earlier dinner, and I'm wondering how "light" I should make it in preparation for the 10:30pm tasting.
Also, regarding the "jackets only" dress code, should l wear a tie with my blazer? What would be typical Tru attire for a late-evening dessert tasting? It's a multigenerational group with both teenagers and boomers...
Thanks for your help.
There are nominally 5 courses, but it's actually about 10 or so, if you include all the amuses, the truffles, the mignardises, and the snack to take home...it's a TON of dessert. Plus, each "main" dessert tends to have two components, AND they serve two different sets of dessert (alternating between members of the party) for each course. So if you're tasting your neighbor's dessert as well as your own, and you choose a reasonable selection of mignardises, you could taste more than 20 desserts. If you select an UNreasonable number of mignardises, it could be more than 30. Eat lightly...a nice salad should be enough, and should make you feel less decadent.
As for dress, we went as a group of young women, and all wore little black dresses. I think dresses or nice skirts would be appropriate (or suits, if the ladies so desired). For men..I can't speak as clearly to it, but why not wear a tie? It's a special occasion.
