I wanted to post this in addition to my earlier question, but forgot. My husband is kosher, so I was assuming we'd order the vegetarian tasting menu, to simplify things. We do eat fish (but not seafood) and the regular menu will probably also have options, and good restaurants often make adjustments for dietary issues. Here's my question. Several months ago, I read a report from someone who doesn't eat meat, and the restaurant allowed them to order a kind of combination of the regular tasting menu and the vegetarian menu. Some items were from the regular, others from the vegetarian. Is this something restaurants, including GT are willing to do? I'd love to try fish dishes but since we don't eat shellfish, it may get silly. I don't want to be a pain in the ass, but I love trying lots of things.
I remember Aureole was quite accomodating once, but haven't had a lot of experience eating with my husband at fine (and unkosher) NY restaurants.
