From NY Times Diner's Journal: http://dinersjournal.blogs.nytimes.co...
"High-quality ingredients, including seafood that is often sustainably sourced; waitress dressed by Diane von Furstenberg; and a lavish interior are designed to appeal to an international clientele. Prices reach as high as $888 for an entree of Japanese abalone with black truffle; whole suckling pig is $295 and Peking duck with Kaluga caviar is $345."

So.... anyone planning on trying this place anytime soon?
I noticed the menu (linked in the NY Times article) says the following:
"Prices include VAT at the current rate. A discretionary service charge of 13% will be added to your bill."
Basically, the prices include tax and the tip is an automatic 13%? Or maybe it was a mistake and the restaurant was using the UK menu template and forgot to delete that line....
