Victoria and Albert's - review and musings

Okay, so I've been to V&A's 5 times now, most recently last Friday night. The service and food, as always, was very good (nothing to complain about at all). But for some reason, I now feel that unless its your first or second visit to V&A, it just isn't worth the money. For the two of us, the tasting menu with a $20 supplement and the wine tasting and tip was $485.

There are so many great chefs opening restaurants across the country that are offering great food and service for much less money. And while I'm not opposed to spending $500+ for two, I think in the future I'll reserve that for places like Le Bernadin, Daniel, French Laundry, etc…

This is not a knock on V&A at all, as the experience was nothing but great. Just something I've been thinking about since dining there.
