The S/O's and my birthday are next month. For his we will go to Atelier Robuchon (been there and love it).
I'm on the fence for mine. Some choices are Corton and EMP. Other suggestions are welcome... As for Per Se, he's not interested and I won't deal with the reservation nonsense. It's also too much food for me (been there, done that). Neither of us was wowed by Jean Georges the one time we went.
We both liked EMP, but I can't do the multicourse tasting again. I was almost alsleep at the end. The meal took almost five hrs.
There was a post on Chowhound about terrible, slow service at Corton. Does anyone know anything about this?
I would love to go to KO, but scoring and early reservation on a specific day, is near impossible (see Per Se).
So folks, Please help me out here.
