N/naka ...101


#81

You forgetting 20% mandatory service on top of tax my friend:

$769 x 20% = $154

$769 + $154 = $924

Alright fine closer to $900 per person bu closer to $1,000 than $700.


#82

Discussion about prices including wine pairings though.

I can’t actually find the cost of their pairings however haha

I think it must be closer to $600 person though?


#84

You’re right, i thought the $398 was inclusive of service similar to tfl. I guess not.


#85

what do you call hijacking a thread started by hijacking a thread?
just asking.


#86

They’ll probably stop soon.


#87

Entertainment


#88

touche!


#89

And ants. :slight_smile:

I believe there was a post wedged between these fascinating cost analyses, by someone who is going to n/naka this week. Whoever you are, please give us a report… If you feel like it.

Okay, carry on brainiacs.


#91

Ha. That is me, and I will.

As I said, our first time. Accordingly, we’re doing both menus. I think that confused them when I confirmed the reservation … especially as we are both “eat/try anything” types.

Should be fun!


#92

Mea culpa. I’m afraid I started it by just saying that I can’t bring myself to pay prices like that.


#93

It’s okay cat. I’m one of the culprits who caused ipse to split the thread in the first place. I actually find it kind of amusing, and wonder who’s going to say something first.


#94

Snakes on a plane?


#95

By both do you mean the vegetarian and the modern?
Interesting.
I personally would be a little wary of getting the vegetarian menu – as much as I admire Niki, it is hard to imagine it being something as good or better than the modern but who knows?


#96

Yes. Both Modern and Vegetarian. Both look fantastic, online, and we’ve sort of worked sharing - even tasting menu sized portions - into an art form unto itself.


#97

This is a great approach. We did precisely this and it worked a peach. Loved being able to try more dishes. I posted some pics of our vegetarian meal here a while back.

Enjoy!

Pro-tip: after your meal, if you write a note saying that 80% of the dishes were great, you’ll get a second meal on the house! (Kiddingggg)


#98

LMFAO!
Fucking Outed.


#99

I know. He’s really funny. His posts always crack me up.


#100

ROFL…


#101

Second that.

Plus, CB, you’re off to vegetarian maestro Alain Passard’s L’Arpège soon anyways. Food-only, that lunch menu was at “steal” at 290€ per person. And that ain’t no fucking joke.
