Looking for input on Scarpetta, Babbo, & Minetta Tavern menu choices

Hi all! Lurking on these boards helped me pick my restaurants, and all the reservations are made.

How do these choices sound?

Scarpetta: Pumpkin Casonsei, Duck & Foie Gras Ravioli, Black Cod. (DH will surely go for the pancetta wrapped pork loin- has anyone had it? Is it good?)

Lunch at Babbo: I'm thinking no primi, and two pasta courses: the beef cheek ravioli, and the agnolotti with brown butter and sage...then the crispy branzino OR a selection of 5 cheeses and dessert.

Dinner at Minetta: My hubbie and I may share the cote de boeuf if it's really worth it. Their coconut cake is also definitely on my must-eat list! May just skip hors d'oeuvres since nothing stands out and the steak and sides will be so filling.

Dinner at EMP: I know there's no menu, and I've been to EMP twice before. I am curious, however, if they always have the duck available. And would they offer both the hot and cold foie gras course? Or will I sound like a total glutton if I subtly ask for it?.....*sheepish grin*
