I enjoy tasting menus as much as the next foodie, but lately my wife and I really like finding a good spot, and ordering 4 or 5 small plates (more/less depending on how small they are) and a bottle of wine. This worked out quite well at places like WD-50 in NYC, had a spectacular 6 small plate meal with vino, just under $200. I've eaten at L'Atelier de JR (and actually met him at the restaurant which was really cool!), but was alone on that trip and am now bringing the wife, curious if that's still my best bet for something like what I'm describing. Creative small plates at around $15-25 each, thanks for your input!
