Hello, it's been a few years since we have been in New York and we are fortunate enough to be able to come back in mid November to celebrate my birthday. On previous trips we have lucky enough to eat at Per Se, Jean Georges, EMP, Le Bernardin as well as other equally tasty, but less fancy places.
As we get older (mid-30's) our stomaches seem to have shrunk and we are no longer able to find room for tasting menus and we also seem to prefer less formal dining experiences, so much so that we have sat at the bar by choice the last 3 times we were at Le Bernardin. We also really like our old school cocktails, and Pegu, PDT, Death and Co are places we intend to return to.
In short I was wondering what the menu at the bar at EMP is like? It would seem they have a good reputation for cocktails now and it might be a good opportunity to combine some excellent food and drink. Can you order off the main menu? What is the experience like?
Thanks in advance.
