NYE Dinner Plans...

Corporate_40 | Dec 2, 2009 09:21 AM

I have the option of the following and can't make a decision:

Scarpetta - $125 for 5 course meal that includes some favorites (polenta, spaghetti, cod)


Dell'anima - regular a la carte menu with a few specials


Degustation - $95 for 10 course tasting menu with champagne toast

While I love Scarpetta, I'm not sure I can justify the $125pp cost for essentially the same meal I could get for 1/2 the price, just b/c its NYE. Dell'anima is nice as well, but not sure its "special" enough for me to want to celebrate there. The food is good, just not sure about it for NYE. And Degustation I love, and the cost is only $20 more than the normal 10 course tasting, but I'm just wondering if 10 courses is too much considering I'll probably go out afterwards (club or something). Also, the space is either gonna be great b/c its so small and will have a good vibe, or the complete opposite.

Anyone have any thoughts?
