I've been wanting to splurge on a tasting menu at a fine restaurant for a while. Just can't find the right excuse for it. ;)

Hey amandaaa - The body/brain register a feeling of satiety or fullness after you have been eating for about 20 minutes. Eating at a slow leisurely pace tends to be better (maybe not super rich restaurant food though - but dang that food looks tremendous) for not over eating. Their was just a study on the stylistic difference between French and American eating habits and the researchers believe that eating slowly is better for this exact reason.

This is a great idea when there is so much on a menu that you want to try. I would do this.

that's awesome. what a cool way to share food and try different things without agonizing over choosing between one food and another. however...i have read that if you eat a variety of foods, a la buffet, your brain will take longer to register that you are full...ahem fitsugar =]

I've only been able to go to a few places and try their tasting menu... My boyfriend is a picky eater though and once he finds a restaurant that he likes, we don't stray far from it... I'm moving out to the west coast soon, so I might have to drag him over to Redd to try it... the food looks delicious!

Redd is one of the most fabulous restaurants in Napa. The tuna tartare is out of this world! Tasting menu's are usually the way to go - if you are ever offered one at a restaurant, go for it. Usually you'll find items unique to the restaurant on the tasting menu, and at the very least, you'll get to taste some of the chef's favorite foods. YUM!! It's always worth the splurge at a fine restaurant.

Wow, this looks fantastic! Ive never done a full tasting menu, but I have gone to a fancy restaurant known for their ability to pair their dishes perfectly with wine. I enjoyed a seven glass flight and four courses. It was a lot of fun.

I've never done a tasting menu but I also live on a budget and fine dining doesn't make it's way in there very often...or at all.
