Vegetarian tasting menus at different prices

darksurtur | Apr 8, 2011 06:37 PM

Hi all,

I am delurking to see if I can get some feedback on a dinner I am organizing. It's a celebration, so I want it to be something nice. It'll have a mix of vegetarians and non-vegetarians, and I was hoping to do some sort of chef's or tasting menu of 4-5 courses.

The sticking point is the price. I've read through the previous threads on the topic and the most fascinating, if it was up to me, would be Providence. But at $95 plus tax and tip, it might be out of the price range of many of my guests.

So I want to present people with a few options at different levels, but many of the places people recommend don't have the tasting menus listed on their Web sites, so it is hard to get a sense of cost. Do people have any recommendations for options less than Providence - things in the $50/$75 category (before tax, tip, and drinks)? Or do I need to give up the tasting idea if I go that low?

Ideally, it would be in central Los Angeles/Hollywood.
