Going to Plum: amount of food to order

foggy_town Nov 15, 2011 10:17 PM

We have a reservation later this week at Plum for 3 of us. The menu is simply divided to "To Start", "Vegetables" and "Animal" sections. Are they roughly small-plate portions? If each of us orders a starter and a vegetable (probably their strength), do we still have room to share 1 or 2 animal plates?

    If you're not big eaters, eight plates might be enough for three. Some of the dishes are a little small for more than two people to share.

      Thanks, 8 plates went perfectly for 3 of us when we dined at Ubuntu. My guess is the portion size would be similar.

        Plum's portions might be a little smaller.

      The animal plates are bigger than the others, but I think 3 starters, 3 vegetables and 2 animal plates would probably be just about right, depending on your appetites (you might want to add one of the snacks, which I don't see on the online menu, but are smaller and cheaper appetizers).
