Restaurants with tasting menus of more than 8 plates?
I'm headed to NY in a couple weeks and am looking for recommendations for restaurants with extensive tasting menus - I prefer places with small courses but many of them (such as Guy Savoy's tasting menu in Vegas, Alinea's 20+ course menu in Chicago, L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon's tasting menu), rather than places with 5-6 course tasting menus of bigger plates. From browsing the tasting menus of some of the city's "top" restaurants, it seems like many of them have the tasting menus with less courses. Can anyone recommend restaurants in NY that have 8-20+ course tasting menus (preferably 10+ plates) that are excellent/first-class? Prefer Manhattan but can be in the other boroughs. I've already been to WD-50 and had their 12 course menu, so not that. Am open to cuisine type. Thanks!

NYC doesn't have any restaurants doing "avant-garde" cooking at a very high level (e.g. El Bulli, The Fat Duck, Alinea, but not wd~50), so 20+ course tasting menus are rare. In addition to the suggestions made above, Le Bernardin does have an 8 course tasting menu (and a separate 7 course one as well).
If you make an advance request, all of the NYT 4 star/Michelin 3 star restaurants will be able to present a custom extended tasting menu.

Kyo Ya does an 8, 9 or 10 course Kaiseki that is delicious. You have to book a couple of days in advance. 8 is regular, 9 adds a sashimi course and 10 makes your grill plate more complicated and adds a caviar like course I believe.
