After being on a waitlist for almost 6 months, we finally got the call that a reservation has opened up for us at the chefs table. However, we thought we'd be a little more excited than we are.
At $200 per person, plus pairing (if we choose), plus tax, plus gratuity, we're wondering if the benefit outweighs the cost. Allergies and similar restrictions are not an issue for us, we just want to know if both the food and experience of being in the kitchen and mingling with the chefs is worth the price.
At most, there could be 8 of us dining there, however they would also let just 2 dine there. Not everyone is convinced that it is worth it, so I am looking to see if anyone has recently dined at the chef's table and can provide some insight.
Money is an issue for me, however I live my life not wanting to miss an opportunity simply because of money. As an example, I had dined at Alinea in Chicago a couple months ago. I couldn't afford it at the time but it was ridiculously amazing and definitely worth it. This brings up another issue, that I will likely be comparing it to Alinea. I don't expect V&As to be near as ridiculous as Alinea was, but I know have a little higher standards.
The other meals we will be dining at on this trip are Bluezoo, Il Mulino, California Grill, and Shula's. We are both men and women ranging from 25 to 52.
Thanks in advance.
