Dear Manhattan Chowhounders,
I wonder if you could offer me a little advice?
I travel to New York on a yearly basis, and always enjoy a lunch at Jean Georges. The food and service have been flawless on every occasion. I was also happy that $38 for two plates was well within my budget.
I am planning a return trip to New York on March 9th. I've read some wonderful things on Chowhound about Eleven Madison Park. I was considering reserving a table for lunch, but I am certain that the tasting menu for $125 is (unfortunately) beyond my budget.
I was curious as to whether anyone has sampled the $74 four course menu recently, and whether this particular dining experience was still recommended.
I was also curious as to whether Chowhounders could suggest an alternate fine dining lunch in Manhattan with a maximum spend of around $75 per head without drinks.
Thank you in advance, and as a first time poster I hope not to have breached any etiquette rules set by the board.
