Le Bernardin and a pregnant wife

drbyyz | Jan 18, 201104:01 AM

So my wife and I will be eating dinner at LB next month for my birthday. I am pretty much set on getting the Chef's tasting menu but we are looking for a little advice for her. She is pregnant and there are a few things on the menu that she can't eat. The two options we are considering are: 1. She gets the prix fixe and picks out stuff that she can eat. The only issue with this I see is the fact that she will have a few courses less than me, while I don't think she will mind, sometimes restaurants don't like this and will require everyone at a table to have the same number of courses, does anyone know if this is an issue at LB? or 2. I've read on here about people substituting courses on the tasting menu, for anyone that has done this, what do they let you substitute? Do you pick a course from the prix fixe menu or somewhere else?

Thanks in advance.
