I'm thinking of taking my husband to Salts for his birthday next month; it will be the first time for either of us and previous posts have whetted my appetite for a long while. I'll be 8 months pregnant and was wondering whether it would be worth it to arrange a tasting menu for the two of us given this condition or if it would be better to go with the duck (or even the regular menu) and save the tasting menu for a time when I won't have any dietary/beverage restrictions to consider. For those with experience with Salts's tasting menu, is it driven more by the number of courses or by budget (in which case, would $100 pp for food only do the kitchen justice?--my husband would probably order a couple of glasses of wine separately rather than a course-by-course pairing)
Thanks in advance for any guidance you can provide! I don't think we'll be going out for a fine dining experience again after this one, so I definitely want the occasion to be special.
