I am sure I have seen threads on this situation before but a quick search now is not turning them out, so beg indulgence.
I have a reservation this week for Eleven Madison with a friend whom I just remembered to be a vegetarian. I phoned the restaurant and they said they cant do a veg. tasting. But they also confirmed that the menu on the web site is Hamm's. So now I am in an even more acute quandary.
I really want to try the new menu (and hey--there are beets, and salad!) and I think the whole place would work for us... but I want my friend to have a great meal, too, and not sure this is the place for it. Should I try for Craft instead? Other recommendations in this general sphere?
