EMP - Tasting with Duck?

My wife and I will be going to EMP this Friday evening. We've decided to do the tasting menu as opposed to the 4-course, but we both also love duck and have heard and read amazing things about its preparation here. Is it possible (or even advisable given the amount of food) to have the duck alongside the tasting menu?

Thanks very much everyone, this board has been amazingly helpful in planning our trip thus far. We've got reservations at Gramercy Tavern, EMP, Bar Room at the Modern, Ma Peche and Minetta Tavern, so can't wait!

  1. Yes it is possible for a 95$ supplement. Confirm with the restaurant for the pricing and availability though. That price was true at the beginning of April.

    The duck ends up being two courses and is substantial in its richness. I had the tasting menu and probably could have also eaten the duck if I ordered it. I am not a big eater but I don't think I would have enjoyed it since it is still pretty rich after all the other food and the tasting was already 3 hours long.
