After years I am finally heading to Manresa next week (hubby got a bonus for washing his hands. He's a surgeon. This should scare you : )).

Anyway, we have done tasting menus at TFL (twice), Chez TJ (twice), Meadowood, Cyrus and in France and each time I have enjoyed myself but I am almost universally meh about the red meat. I eat red meat, but for the most part it just doesn't do much for me. I would much rather have fish and vegetarian dishes.

I don't want to be a pain to the chef (already have an allergy), but I would love a perfectly cooked egg over the most expensive cut of beef. I know I am weird that way.

Would you ask for no red meat on a tasing menu or would you just leave it in the chef's hands? Experience at Manresa particularly applicable, but interested in the discussion at all Bay Area tasting menus.
