Best use of $100 at Nicholas
I know we can just use it as a credit towards the large tasting menu. We were trying to keep things on a low budget and were given a GC to Nicholas. Do you think we should just do the 3 course tasting & dip into our pockets a little? Or should we order a number of dishes off of the bar menu?
From the bar share:
2 orders of Gnocchi
1 Beet and Goat Cheese Tartare
1 Seared Day Boat Scallops
1 Cheese Plate
1 order of Beignets
with 2 glasses of wine and coffee you should be right on target
If you are really hungry, add an order of Pulled Pork, a bargain at $14. And don't forget that since they switched bakeries, the bread is excellent.
The truffle lobster is probably my favorite thing they have at nicholas. It's insanely delicious.
If I had a 100$ GC for two and it was my first trip to Nicholas, I'd probably go to the dining room and get a 3 course for one and 5 for another and shell out the 30$ out of pocket. The food's the same at the bar (and I personally prefer to eat there), but it's not quote the same dining experience.
We finally went and enjoyed the bar experience. We had been to the dining room a few times before and liked the laid back feel of the bar. It also seemed to pick u pthe pace of the meal.
We tried all of the suggestions. The only slight disappointment was the beet/goat cheese. All others were delicious esp. the suckling pig & the gnocchi.
