The a la carte is back online. I wonder if they tinkered with the pricing, because even if you skip dessert, you can’t reproduce the rest of the tasting for $95 let alone add other stuff. It really only serves people who only want an app and an entree.

You can see just how much tinkering there's been from the fact that caviar is only slightly more expensive than other items in the same category but still carries a $25 supplement in the tasting. 

 

Did I mention how much I hate this shit? 


sandwiches that are large and filling and do not contain tuna or prawns

Yes, that’s weird. The duck makes no sense either. If they really mean to charge both diners a $50 supplement.

Remember Tailor, from Sam Mason. Opened with a strict no substitute tasting menu, but you could do the same from the carte with any substitutions you felt like, cheaper. How is this stuff so difficult? Assumption that diners can’t read/count?

Even if it's just one supplement, the other meat entrees now cost about the same as the duck.

With the inappropriately dressed servers, yes.
