Best deals for prix fixe dinners/ tasting menus? Help.
I'm arranging a dinner for 8 foodies who love their wine on a Fri/Sat around 8-9pm, and as many of you know, closing a tab for 8 people, each paying for themselves can get messy -- especially when some people order pricier dishes than others, share appetizers, wine, etc. For this reason, I have decided to look for a place that has a set price for dinner.
I'm looking for some recommendations on some good deals for either prix fixe dinners or tasting menus at great restaurants. This can be a tough group to please, so the food has to be good.
I would appreciate any suggestions, thank you.
Becco is amazing - it has a prix fixe dinner for $24 dollars that includes either antipast or ceasar salad and a tasting pasta menu (they come out of the kitchen with pans of 3 different delicious pastas!) They also have an extensive wine list for $24 each.
Melt out in brooklyn has a 5 course tasting menu for $25 on Tuesdays. Add 5 wine pairings for only $20 more. Hard to beat that. Unfortunately, not for your time frame.
I loved the tasting menu at Blue Hill. It was fantastic as was the service. Clean, fresh flavors in a great setting.
