Prix Fixe Menus
So it looks like a lot of places are doing prix fixe menus now (due to the bad economy?). I know that trulucks, Trio, and 3 forks are all doing this right now. Are there any other fine dining restaurants around town that are doing this as well?
some also refer to it as a "tasting menu".
so many restaurants are doing variations now.
personally, i like them, because i can often enjoy several things for a decent price.
chez nous ("menu du jour")
the carillon (three or six course tasting menu)
aquarelle (menu rapide, menu marche')
driskill grill (farm to table three course menu)
olivia (10 course chef's tasting)
jeffrey's (5 course tasting menu)
el arbol ("Every Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday this month we are featuring a $40 3 course prix fixe menu in addition to our new fall menu.)
went to chez nous tonight and had the menu du jour and was pretty impressed! 3 courses for $26 and all the food was fantastic (I went with the duck pate, a perfectly cooked tenderloin with a tasty butter/herb garnish, and a chocolate hazelnut torte) and the service was excellent. I wonder why this place doesn't get a lot of love on these boards.
I'll definitely be coming back and trying some of the a la carte dishes.
