I went years ago for some anniversary. I’ve long since thrown out the souvenier menu but I will never forget the food and having chef Achatz himself create a Jackson Pollack like dessert masterpiece right on our tablecloth at meal’s end.
This woman made me remember this wonderful meal with words and pictures:
I took my daughter and her friend there. They enjoyed it.
Phew…I’m not a lightweight and I’m not sure if I could keep up with your mom.
And bravo to the staff who took care of a potentially uncomfortable situation for your mom. I think we’ve all found ourselves in similar situations and probably with less solicitous help.
I’m boggled at this-- not the cost been aware of the $1k-ish dinners with pairings at 3 star spots for some years now (not that I’d ever pay that much!) – but there’s nothing on that menu that entices me. Also I agree w/ her criticism of having the dinner done for the room wasn’t cool. For that kind of money customized service should be the default.
