Best tasting menu in NYC?

10 posts in this topic

Actually, both would be nice! A range of people's favorites would probably include both of these.

If you look at the a la carte menu, you'll see that the pricing on the Aldea tasting menu makes no sense.

I love that place, but it doesn't pay to stray from the carte there.

My favorite tasting menus are: Per Se, Eleven Madison Park, Bouley, Momofuku Ko, and Picholine.

Price no object, or are you looking for best price-to-performance?

In purely food terms, I'd say my first choice would be Chef's Table at Brooklyn Fare for "price no object", and suggest you consider Degustation for a value-oriented "price-to-performance" pick. I'd put Per Se, Momofuku Ko, L'atelier de Joel Robuchon, and Jean Georges right after BK Fare for the no object category.

Also, if price is truly no object, and you're a fan of Japanese food, you probably have to consider Masa as well. (Also in the kaiseki vein, Brushstroke, Kyo Ya and the omakase bar at Morimoto are great. Note: the omakase bar is a totally separate experience and has a different menu from the rest of Morimoto and shouldn't be confused with ordering the "omakase" in the main restaurant.)
