Le Bernadin Tasting Menu Substitutions

vbchica14 | Nov 5, 2012 09:32 AM

I'm going to dinner at Le Bernadin in a few weeks and want to get one of the tasting menus. The one thing that throws me off is that I am not a fan of any of the dessert offerings on either menu and really want to try the Hazelnut-Marshmellow and Banana desserts. So much so I'm tempted to instead get the prix fixe so my dining companion and I can order each of those and share.

I certainly do not want to miss out on the experience by skipping getting one of the tasting menus, but really do not like the dessert options on those menus/want to try the desserts mentioned above. Would it be a total offense to the flow of the meal to ask them to swap out the desserts for the two I want? Thoughts?
