chef's tables (eg, Saison) and differences in the sexes

Geanhang | May 22, 2012 05:16 PM

My significant other and I are wondering how other couples solve the following issue which comes up for us now and again and most recently in connection with the chef's table at Saison. The reviews I've read convince me that despite the astronomical cost, eating the 20-course meal at the chef's table would be a meal for the ages and something I'd really like to try once in my life. But my significant other says that although she would greatly enjoy the first 10 courses or so, much beyond that would make her feel painfully full and it would rapidly devolve from a very pleasurable experience into a highly uncomfortable one. She says that many women would probably agree and that these kinds of multi-course extravaganzas are tailored for man-size appetites. It's hard for me to argue with that. How do others manage it? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
