Hello again! I had asked for some recs back in August when my husband and I came with our 7 year old ( her first time in NY!). Well, she loved it as much as we did and turns out her favorite restaurant was Prune. We are fortunate enough to be able to visit again mid February for my birthday. I was able to get a reservation for lunch at Eleven Madison Park for the 17th. After reading about all the lovely reviews here I felt like it's worth the splurge. I do have a few questions if anyone can help me I would appreciate it.
1. Both of us want to do the tasting menus but I don't eat red meat or pork. I know they tailor the tasting menu but if we wanted the clam pot for example would they create it without chorizo or do two versions or just do something else entirely?
2. My husband is a wine lover and would like to do the wine pairing. How many wines do they usually serve with a tasting? I'd like to join him but I'm a little worried it might be too much since it's lunch time and we will have arrived from L.A. that morning. I'd hate to pass out at the table. If I do a few glasses with the meal - how many would you suggest with the tasting menu?
3. One of my favorite foods is uni. Any way I can make a special request for it or is it not part of their winter menu?
4. How long will the meal last? We're not in a hurry just wondering if I need to even make dinner plans. We might just hit a few favorite bars and have some bar snacks if we're up for it later.
Thanks so much for all your help! I truly appreciate it.
