Vetri eliminates a la carte option and goes tasting menu-only

    Fine dining is getting finer — and more expensive. Restauranteur Marc Vetri is scaling back on seating at the popular Vetri restaurant, upping his prices and cutting the menu. The new tasting menu-only approach begins March 15.

     

    In an interview with food critic Craig LaBan, Vetri said he’s hopeful the new approach will highlight the eatery’s quality service and in-demand food in a way that an a la carte menu can’t.

    Clients will now pay $135 (not including tax, tip and beverage, mind you) to select from the tasting menu — currently just a weekend indulgence.
