Graham Elliot prices
the price range seems on point...
I haven't been to graham elliot since before the reviews all came out... but my brother went last night and has noted a few differences, namely adjustments to the music volume/style and a significant service tune-up.
blackbird is awesome, don't get me wrong, but i think it stands in contrast from graham elliot, and my preference is for ge...i found his food fuller/richer with more flavor combos per plate and also simply larger food volume. it is also still a 'hot' ticket though, so more crowded and everrything that goes along with that.
either one of those meals though will be exceptional value for the dollar, and i envy your choice!
I dined there for a business dinner soon after they opened, and including wine, cocktails, apps, entrees, dessert, the tab was over $100 per person (before tip). I'm sure people would have exercised more restraint if dining on their OWN dollar rather than the company's, but that should give you an idea of what it will run you if you splurge.
Food was great, service was outstanding. I'd put it in my "definitely worth a visit, a tad too pricey for a return visit" category.
