Alternative to EMP
I've always had Eleven Madison Park on my list. Unfortunately, the fixed price tasting menu is out of my price range. What is the closest alternative to EMP? Similar cuisine and execution. Preference is to have an ala carte option. Entrees around the $50 range.
I'm a little confused. EMP does not have a prix fixe, only a $225pp tasting menu. EMP eliminated their prix fixe lunch ($75 I think) and prix fixe dinner ($125) in September 2012. Any threads before September 2012 are discussing the old menu structure.
What is your actual budget per person for food only if it is a prix fixe ?
Have you looked at The NoMad?
Just to add on, I have read through various threads and I am returning to NYC -- trying to decide between NoMad and Betony. I dined at the NoMad last time I was there and loved it (have previously also been to EMP) - especially over the duck dish at the NoMad. Betony's menu looks interesting but I am having a tough time deciding .. any thoughts? THANKS !!
