Tocqueville, V-Day '09: no tasting menu?

FazaMonster | Feb 12, 2009 07:12 AM

Hi all, 1st post. Love the site.

I snagged a res for Tocqueville, but have never been there and it seems to be respected if not oft-reported on these boards. When I was telephoned to confirm, I was told there'd be a $95 prix fixes 3-course for dinner. I thanked them and hung up and then got buyer's remorse in advance.

I want a tasting menu! I want to hang out for a while, have the wine paired up, and taste as many things as possible.

Have I made a mistake?

Should I attempt to find a new place, or just sit back and assume they're still offering a solid experience? Honestly, just by the $95pp figure I'm not getting the sense of a feast, which is what I was hoping for; even with a wine pairing this is about 1/2 what I expected to spend. Too good to be true if they're not going to offer me less food than I want, right?

I'm stuck, aren't I?
