Torrisi - @ $100 prix-fixe, still worth it?

Has anyone been recently?

  1. i went when it was maybe $65ish and i thought it was decent but pretty much fully valued at $65. i remember having a fantastic duck entree and a pasta dish with shishito peppers that i liked quite a bit.

    my main gripe was that with everyone eating the same courses, you felt like it was a little like an assembly line or a wedding catering hall. service felt very formulaic. i wouldnt return.

    i also thought the wine list was very mediocre. lots of new world reds.

    on that note, i go to parm often. for that price point, it works.

      I have never been to Torrisi or Carbone and I'm thinking I need to try at least one.
      Seems like Carbone gets all the talk lately. Both good AND bad.
      I don't know if this is indicating Torrisi is basically past it's prime or not.
