A Trip to CityZen
So, we were lucky enough to get a gift certificate to CityZen for Xmas and are planning a trip! We have never been, what is the best way to do this? Is there a set menu? A best day to get a reservation? What are the best dishes to order, etc? I only know to ask for more Parker House rolls...
The menu changes so it is difficult to recommend a dish. If this is your first time, try the tasting menu. If there is somehting on the a la carte menu that entices us, we do that, otherwise usually the tasting menu. They also have a vegetarian tasting menu that is very good. Theh chef doesn't like to make substitutions from the tasting menu so don't bother to ask.

When I was there a couple of weeks ago I asked for a substitution from the tasting menu and they did it with no problem. I guess it depends on the situation. I agree do teh tasting if you like the menu. If not the nice thing is they let one person do the tasting while the other can do the three course. I like this since most restaurants insist that the tasting menu be the entire table. I have personally never has a bad dish, but many on this board have and will give your their perspective.
