Jean-Georges lunch policy change?

I did ask the waiter if it would be an issue choosing two entrees and had no problem paying the supplement charge. I don't even think the Op was complaining just asking for clarification on a charge they said was not charged previously.

Jean-Georges lunch policy change?

I went to lunch there for the first time this week and was hit with the same $8 supplement charge. I hadn't read anything on here about there being an extra charge for choosing two entrees so i was a little surprised but they did let me know when I was placing my order.

Per Se Salon and Daniel prix fixe or Eleven Madison Park Tasting Menu?

I have not. Maybe the only comparable place I have been to is Craftsteak in Vegas, but even there I wanted to do the tasting menu but because the entire table didn't want to take part, I had to stick to ordering a la carte.

I am from Chicago so I have Alinea and Next practically in my back yard but have been to neither. Most of my friends couldn't imagine spending $100 on a meal let alone $200 and both of those restaurants don't allow solo diners. That's part of the reason for taking this trip solo is that I can eat where ever I want and not have to worry about any friends cash restraints.

Based on comments in this thread and in other threads, I might be crossing eating at Daniel off my list and instead eating at EMP for lunch one day and at the Salon at Per Se for dinner another night. I am also going to have lunch at Jean Georges.

Thanks for everyone's responses

Per Se Salon and Daniel prix fixe or Eleven Madison Park Tasting Menu?

I am taking a solo trip to New York in late January and was trying to piece together my itinerary with some Michelin star restaurants. Looking at the menus it looks like ordering a couple of items off of the Per Se Salon menu and taking part in the Daniel prix fixe menu would be comparable price wise to doing the tasting menu at Eleven Madison Park. Would eating at two Michelin three star restaurants, albeit with not the whole three star experience be more or less memorable than the full experience at one three star restaurant? Just curious as to your opinion on my options and what you might choose? Also if I decide not to do the tasting at EMP, is there an a la carte option at their bar?
