I'm thinking of making my hubby take me for my birthday. I was reading an earlier post that said not to order from the menu but to have the chef make us something special, stating our likes and dislikes. So... should we also stay away from the tasting menu as well (unless it sounds divine)? We've never ordered this way in a restaurant and would appreciate your feedback. (Don't want to upset our waiter!)How does this work exactly? We are big eaters. Will we have to mortgage the house? We've been to the one in Vegas and it was good but not great.
