What is the exact difference between the regular dining room and the chef's table? (not price, but food and atmosphere) My DH wants to eat at V&A's but I am concerned because I am very picky. I don't eat seafood, mushrooms, lamb, duck, tuffles, venison and I like my meat well done always. I love fine cheeses, breads, filet (well-done), chicken, ham, potatoes, salads, all veggies but mushrooms, any pasta, all desserts. My 15DS loves all food just like my DH and has been to many fine dining places. I am thinking about skipping V&A's and letting my son take my place. I am not sure if the chef's table would accommodate my pickiness or not? I also love wine and we would definitely do the wine pairings. I don't want to miss the experience but don't want to waste money. Also, is it absolutely necessary to book the chef's table 180 day out? What about the regular dining room? Lastly, if is only 2 people will they put other people with you at the chef's table?
