Vetri Abandons A La Carte

In March, Marc Vetri is going to stop offering his a la carte menu and will go to tasting menus only each night Vetri is open. Vetri will offer a classics menu option, the more inventive degustazione, a pasta tasting, and a vegetarian menu.

LaBan highlights several other successful tasting menus, namely at JG Domestic where 25% of the meals are tasting dinners and Tinto where tasting options make up 35% of the orders. In Conshohocken, Chip Roman sees 45% of his Blackfish customers ordering the tasting menu.

So we ask, do you think this is a good idea for Vetri and do you expect other chefs to follow suit?
