La Panetiere, rye ny via groupon
we used our groupon tonight for La Panetiere. The groupon was for their four course tasting menu,. Decided to add wine pairings, four generous pours and some very good wine including a 2009 bordeaux. actually, the waiter generously poured an extra glass of bordeaux for the cheese course. The room, food and service were top-notch and we loved the pacing of the four courses over three hours.
Nice to hear that it was good -- they sold a lot of those! 42 is on Groupon today. $80 for 2, $175 for 4 (the latter includes a bottle of wine). I didn't buy LP because there was no menu choice. 42 has different choices in each course. Plus you get fried rice as a 2nd course (seems strange).
we based our gratuity on the pre-discount tasting menu cost+wine pairing. all in it was about $120pp. if we didn't opt for the wine pairing it would have been $70 (with gratuity on the per-discounted amount).
if you want to drink 4 (in our case 5) glasses of good wine with dinner, paired to each course, the wine pairing is a good deal.
