Calling all Degustation pros / fans....

Got a rez for tonight: birthday dinner.

We were pretty set for doing the 5 course tasting menu, as 10 courses just sounds excessive, and I'm not sure I want to feel like passing out after dinner if ya catch my drift. City life and all, we might wanna grab a few drinks afterwards.

My question (having noticed the foie gras dish) is whether one has any 'control' over the dishes they choose, or do you just eat what is served? This is even more important given that we'd have to eat the same thing if we opt for the tasting menu.

Should the most 'recent' thread (2008!) stlll be valid two years later, would we really be able to order 5 courses รก la carte and still not pay through the roof for it?

Anywhos - any thoughts or comments would be very much appreciated.
