Picholine Pricing

I'm going to be eating at Picholine in a couple of weeks, and I'm a little bit confused by the pricing structure. The prix fixe menu on the website says that three courses are $92, but various other sites indicate that there are many many options as to how many courses you want at Picholine, as well as some indicating that dessert is included in that price.

Basically my question is, is the $92 prix fixe 3 courses + dessert? Or is it 2 courses + dessert, or just 3 savory courses, with dessert being extra?

Thanks to anyone who can help!

  1. It's 2 courses and dessert plus an amuse and some mignardises at the end of the meal.

      Also, you can add more courses for $12 each. These can be appetizers, appetizer-size portions of main courses, cheese, or dessert. The amuse usually consists of 3 or 4 different items.

        Actually, it doesn't have to be 2 savory courses plus dessert. I was there last week and my husband and I both ordered 3 savory courses, then skipped on dessert. For the middle course, they can prepare any of the main courses (except for the chicken kiev) as appetizer portions. We were charged for three courses.
        If you go, I recommend the Chicken Kiev (stuffed with liquid foie gras) -- but then again I recommend most of the menu! I think the food is really fantastic, and every time I go Terrance Brennan is walking around the dining room greeting people.

      2. I'm confused as well. Are the only options the $92 prix fixe or the chef's tasting menus? Can you order the tasting flights in the dining room or only at the bar? Thanks.

          Yes, these are the only options in the dining room.
