Advice on Del Posto Requested

Jammin Joy | Aug 23, 201108:53 AM     17

We have early dinner reservations for 4:30 this coming Sat. prior to attending "Sleep No More". Our issue is that fine dining is one of our favorite Manhattan experiences, but we are also light eaters/drinkers. The tasting menu is out of the question for us. And I don't really understand what is included in the five-course option, but feel it is probably too much as well. How can the two of us get the biggest taste bang from this experience without ending up uncomfortably overstuffed and miserable for the rest of the evening? This applies to wine as well. Two glasses apiece is probably the limit. Will the staff be reasonably tolerant of our sharing as many courses as we think we can handle? How would you structure this meal amongst two diners?
