I just got off the phone with a Torrisi Italian Specialties reservationist and was told that they no longer offer the longer, approx. 16-20 course, tasting menu. Has anyone heard about this or why? I know that months ago they moved away from the New York homage courses.
So, just to confirm, are the lunch and dinner menus basically the same now? (with the dinner simply being $10 more) Has anyone had both lunch and dinner there recently? I've read a lot of reviews of the regular menu and opinions seem mixed.
I'm thinking I should go to Marea instead for dinner since my friend loves seafood, and just do Torrisi for lunch. I'm also going to probably do Babbo and Del Posto for lunches, so I'd welcome any thoughts on that or what to order at any of these places (my other lunch companions have been ruined by the pasta in Emilia-Romagna).
I know there are lots of other favorites on this board and elsewhere, so I'd be open to other options for lunch and dinner too.
