Follow up

I really should follow up this meal and posting by mentioning that, as a result of this dinner, I actually bought champagne. The Verve Clicquot Yellow label was on sale $10 off) just before New Year's, so that is what we had to celebrate. Then, as we stopped off to pick up some beer and wine for the ship en route Pt Canaveral, I bought another bottle ($53) for sailaway from our verandah.

The reality is that, I would not experiment at $50/bottle, but I will spend $50/bottle if I know in advance it will be worth it - and these events provide that opportunity.

I do enjoy your reviews (though I'm a lurker who seldom pipes up!) but i had somehow not come accross this report before. We seem to have accidentally (really) booked this for our visit to the Flying Fish on our coming trip which I'm now very excited about. It all looks utterly delicious.

Verve Clicquot Dinner? Lucky you!
p.s. if you want a simple way to see all posts, you can use the Disboards advanced search function for "Thread start by" "ehagerty"

I see you're staying here...

Beautiful photographs! Do ou by chance remember the cost of this meal? I can't find it on the website. Also does TIW apply for this?

I almost certainly have that receipt somewhere, but not handy - I think it was $125/pp. TIW discount does NOT apply to special dinners like this one (or the monthly Wave, or the Tasting Menu Mon-Thu at Flying Fish.)

Do you get to pick what you want from choices on the chef's menu or you get what they have?
