Le Bernardin tomorrow night - prix fixe or tasting menu?

skgchow | May 19, 2010 02:21 PM

My husband and I are going to LB tomorrow night (first time for both of us). In your opinion, should we get the tasting menu? Or order from the standard 4-course prix fixe? I've heard wonderful things about the wine program - so am inclined to do the tasting, perhaps with only 1 wine pairing. Do you know or do you think LB would split a wine pairing between the 2 of us (1/2 wine serving each per course)? I love seafood, but am still a little picky (i.e. not thrilled that octopus is on the tasting menu), so that makes me think I should do the prix fixe and choose my own courses. As you can see, I'm torn!! Any advice/thoughts/fav dishes etc would be much appreciated!
