Babbo'S tasting menu

Campofiorin Aug 6, 2008 11:02 AM

Hi NYC Hounds, heading back to Manhattan next week since we managed to get a reservation at Babbo. We were looking into taking the pasta tasting menu this time around but my only concern is that my GF is allergic to any fish and seafood, are they opened to substitutions?

Other than that, we're also going to Bar Boulud,and leaving one night opend which could turn out to be Inoteca or Alta or Georgia's East Side BBQ (just love the vibe of the place and the ribs are crazy).

    They are very helpful and concerned when it comes to dealing with allergies. I'm guessing that concern would extend to the tasting menu as well.

      With my experience at Babbo, they are very open to substituting courses from the tasting menu.

        Thank you for your reply. That's what I thought as service really is one of their stronger points. We'll make te waiter aware from the begining if we chose to go the tasting menu way.
