A dining splurge, whether it’s from time to time, for an unique celebration, or simply the average Saturday night, is the sort of reward every Eater can support. For dining establishments that sit at the greater end of the cost variety, there’s typically a tasting menu that provides a multi-course, bite-sized trip of what it does finest. Made up of the chef’s favorites, seasonal specialities, and one-night-only specials, the tasting menu is a method to attempt a bit of whatever.
Most of these choices are over $100 a plate, omitting the red wine pairing– so attempt them when the ambiance (and the bank balance) feels right.
