I know that I'm breaking several rules of etiquette here, but don't have much of a choice. I have a 7PM reservation at Degustation tonight, but a concert later in the night that will require me to leave around 8:30 PM. Believe me I HATE double-booking, but circumstances being what they are (surprise visit from friend in California who reserved dinner; long-standing tickets to concert) I'm going to have to suck it up for tonight.
Is the service at Degustation leisurely or relatively quick? This is assuming I don't go for the 5 or 10 course tasting menu (well, maybe the 5). I'm dreading being rude to the party and missing out on my food if I have to leave before the meal even finishes. Thoughts?
