Wine pairing? EMP

hkgirl | May 27, 2014 11:15 PM

On our upcoming visit to Eleven Madison Park, my husband and I are debating whether to select the wine pairing or not. If anyone has had the pairing recently, I'd love to hear your thoughts. As background, we both like our wine and have at times gotten through 2 bottles plus a glass of dessert wine during a great dinner out, it's a big part of the meal for us. Our last pairing was at Robuchon in Macau, which was wonderful. I enjoyed tasting wines I normally would not have selected and the difference they made to each course. We are not oenophiles by any stretch but do appreciate great wine. I believe the wine pairing is around the $145 - $190 mark? Please correct me here! The other option I've read and am pleasantly shocked by is the policy that EMP offers a corkage charge to bring your own wine! Does anyone really do this and is it the norm at all? Many thanks in advance!
