We were there almost three hours. The plates came at a pace, with built in pauses to relax and just drink the wine. We had about 16 courses, some bigger than others. By the end I was too full to eat anymore.
I am with you, it's the best way to eat out at a great restaurant with a skilled chef and sommelier if you can afford it.

Sadly, these days, I AM ZEE CHEF!
