EMP lunch questions
I do agree with gutsofsteel about wine pairings; you may request.
As for the lunch vs dinner experience, I have been only to the lunch portion (4-course option for my birthday in early November) of EMP after the renovation and found it much more lengthier (in a good way, that's if you have the time) than the Gourmand tasting during lunch pre-renovation.
Also on EMP's website within the past few weeks, they have a 4-course menu and the tasting menu for dinner.
