Some things to consider

3 Courses usually include an appetizer, soup OR a salad, entree and dessert 

​4 Courses usually include an appetizer, AND soup or salad, entree and dessert 

A tasting menu can be up to 7 small plates including dessert 

​Your portions will be ratioed for all menus (not referring to a twitter reply) depending on the amount of courses.  These are higher in price since there is more work for Chef Melissa.  But she does love tasting menus for many other reasons as well.
