Esca Tasting Menu?
Headed to Esca this week and I am going back and forth on the tasting menu vs. a bunch of a la carte options. I will be there with 3 others and am assuming if we all get the tasting menu it could be a lame dinner, whereas if we order a la carte we can all try many different things. Another consideration for us is cost. I know this place is expensive, and I dont mind shelling out the 125$ for the tasting menu if its worth it.
Long story short has anyone done the tasting at Esca, and do you think its worth it or should we go a la carte?
I have never tried the tasting menu there, but I have always enjoyed my a la carte meals. We usually like to start with crudo, then the uni pasta and the whole fish. There are a number of very interesting appetizers as well (we like the anchovies, which are a staple), and if you share as a table, you can try more options. Hope this helps.
