In mid-June, the only wine pairing they offered us was @$175, not $250.
They were extremely generous, topping off our glasses at appropriate intervals throughout each course. They left us the balance of several bottles towards which we had indicated -- quietly and not so quietly -- a particular preference. A member of our party who quietly showed an indifference to our cheese course was quickly provided with both a new plate, after he was asked about his cheese preferences, and a new paired wine to accompany it.
Bottom line: We were a party of five, four of us got the foie supp @$30 and one person got the Wagyu supp @$75 (huge mistake IMO; it was offered against the Eslysian Fields' lamb, which was, for me, the standout plate of the evening.) After splitting everything evenly five ways, it came out to $503 per person. (Food $1445, wine $875, tax $195. Service included.)
