Many upscale restaurants let you choose between a 3-course prix fixe and more elaborate tasting menus (smaller portions, 5+ courses). What I'm really looking for is four courses--appetizer, fish, meat, dessert--that are larger than tasting sized, but would not be quite as large as an app + two full mains+ dessert. (And I'm not looking to do the Italian version, where you split a pasta mid course.)
I see that Eleven Madison Park's menu is designed for this kind of 4-course dining (adding a 4th course is only $12 more), as is the menu at Alain Ducasse. And I see that Cafe Boulud's menu organization would probably make ordering this way easy. Any other ideas for places that best accomodate this kind of ordering?
