Contemplating Masa's This Friday...

boltnut55 | Oct 16, 2007 01:04 AM

Last year after celebrating my 40th birthday at the Dining Room, I decided that I deserve to do this once a year... why wait till I'm 80, right? I might be dead! Anyway, we decided to try another restaurant with a tasting menu, and especially since the Dining Room doesn't have reservations when we're available, I'm thinking about going to try Masa's. Looks like they have a 6-course and a 9-course.

It'll be my husband and me. We both don't drink alcohol, so we'll pass on the wine. Can we add an entree to the menu? Anything I should know about this restaurant? I noticed the 9-course doesn't have prime rib... and that's my favorite! At the Dining Room, we were charged $10/each for the cheese, but I didn't hear any words from our server that told me there was an extra charge. Anything like this I should know about ahead of time? $20 didn't kill us, but it was extra calories we didn't need if we were going to pay extra for. Any specialty dish I should know about? Is this place a little louder, more crowded compared to the Dining Room?

Sorry, it's getting late, so that's all I can think of for now! Thanks!
