On Tuesday, September 15th, representatives from eight different California wine regions will be hosting wine dinners at Eleven Madison Park, Tabla, and The Modern as part of California Wine Month. EMP will be serving three courses with pairings for $130, The Modern, four courses with pairings for $150, and Tabla three courses with pairings for $110 (see the menus here). And, to get everyone appropriately excited, they've agreed to give away one pair of tickets to any one of the dinners. The first person to correctly answer this question to firstname.lastname@example.org wins:
How much were the original basic tasting menus at both Tabla and The Modern the first year they opened?
May the best reader win.
Update: The correct answers are $65 and $95. People were most tripped up by Tabla. While it opened without a tasting menu (the prix fixe was $48), it did indeed launch one within its first year.
