Share tasting menu?

Is it appropriate to share a tasting menu between two people?
I will be going to spago for the 10 course tasting menu, but my wife doesn't want that much food?

        1. No. Don't try to do this.

          1. Please don't do this.

            The thing is, by definition a tasting menu is generally for the whole table and thus already "shared" amongst all the patrons.

            Asking to share a tasting menu would be the equivalent of buying one drink with free refills and "sharing" it with the entire table.

              well no it's not the same, as you don't get "refills" on a tasting menu.

              But still, no, it is not acceptable to share a tasting menu.
