A table full of gorgeous bites at Georgie.

A dining splurge, whether it’s every now and then, for a special occasion, or just the average Saturday night, is the kind of treat every Eater can get behind. For restaurants that sit at the higher end of the price range, there’s often a tasting menu that offers a multi-course, bite-sized tour of what it does best. Made up of the chef’s favorites, seasonal specialities, and one-night-only specials, the tasting menu is a way to try a little bit of everything.

Most of these options are over $100 a plate, excluding the wine pairing — so try them when the vibe (and the bank balance) feels right.
