Classic NYC Tasting Menu - Need Help Narrowing Down Choices
My husband and I do a Christmas Tasting Menu every year and this year we want to do something classic. Our three choices are Daniel, Jean Georges and Eleven Madison Park. We have never been to any of these. We are looking for outstanding service as well as amazing food. The wine pairing is less of a focus this year as only one of us can drink it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
It shouldn't be a surprise to anyone here that I would throw my hat into the ring for EMP. Don't get me wrong; I would glady partake in any one of those tasting menus because they are all excellent choices but for me, when the evening is the total package of food, service, atmosphere, and fun then EMP wins. I personally don't think there is any restaurant in NYC presenting a tasting menu the way EMP does it.
NB: EMP books up within minutes of opening their books already. It will probably be even worse during the holiday season, especially if you want a weekend night.
They book 28 days (4 weeks) in advance at 9am. So you would call Saturday 11/23 at 9am for Saturday 12/21, etc. Good luck.
