I'm wondering how others feel about tasting menus. I went to Bouley for a work lunch the other day, and while the service was mostly impeccable and the bread out of this world, the experience reaffirmed for me how little I enjoy tasting menus, especially ones based in French technique. I felt compelled to eat past my point of satiety and really would have been happier choosing one dish or sharing a bunch of dishes amongst the table. Not to mention the time commitment. Am I alone?
