Looking for Chef's Tables
I really need your help. I am hoping to book a Chef's Table experience for my God son who I only see every 2 or 3 years. He is 16 and one of the most adventurous eaters I've ever met and we have long email conversations about food. He's appreciative of various cuisines and in awe of chefs.
I will be in NY in about two month's time and hope to have a great night out with him and his family.
Here is the list that I believe has chef's table options:
Gordon Ramsey at the London
Park Avenue Winter
....I can't afford the Gordon Ramsey Option at $2K for the evening before wine, tip etc.
Can you recommend any of the others if you've been? Does anyone know if Park Avenue Winter still has a chef's table-like option as it did when it was the Park Avenue Cafe?
Or would I be better off trying to find a Japanese restaurant with a great sushi bar for an Omakase meal?
Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance to all of you Chowhounds.
The counter seats all 12-16(?) diners at Degustation around an open kitchen. I think it is just like a chef's table but maybe a little larger.
Doesn't dell'amina have a the equivalent of a chef's table? Maybe less private, but it seems that that would be more reasonably priced if Tom:Tuesday dinner is too high (same thing with Degustation).
Sushi is also a great option, maybe look into 15 East or Sushi Azabu.
Kitchen Counter at the Beacon. It's a burger bar, Monday through Friday, except for Thursday nights, when it's "Dinner with the Chefs," and reservations are crucial because there are only 6 seats at the counter. You can see a sample menu for the Thursday night dinner if you click through on this link...
