I'm going to be coming up from New York this coming weekend with my girlfriend and we were looking forward to having some amazing meals. We have reservations for L'Express on friday and Toque on Sat. We had a couple questions and were looking for feedback/suggestions.
1) We wanted to know if there were any items we simply should not miss?
2) If either has a tasting menu, are they worth getting?
3) What are the dress codes like?
4) Any suggestions for either pre or post dinner drinks nearby?
We still have sunday open so if anybody could suggest a third place, one that is less expensive, i would appreciate it. Must say i have big expectations for the food so i can't wait.
