We're planning to eat at Eleven Madison Park. My dining companion has a long list of food dislikes. Given that the menu only lists the main ingredient for each dish (and the tasting menu may offer even less detail), we're concerned that some dishes would include ingredients she dislikes.
EMP's web site says to "share any thoughts or preferences, including any ingredient dislikes, and allow us to design their meal from there." Alas, she has too many dislikes to list.
Will this be a problem? The best solution would be for her to see a menu that lists main ingredients for each course (i.e., a normal menu), but that doesn't seem to be how EMP operates.
I suppose the best alternative is to discuss the matter with our server. Any other suggestions, including anything we might do in advance?
