The name of this Penn Quarter restaurants speaks not only to its food, but also it's seating situation -- there are only 12. Needless to say, Barmini's notoriously hard to secure a reservation at (calling won't work anymore, they use email exclusively now so they can use the timestamps to determine who asked first), and also notoriously expensive (meals go upward from $250 a person). But you're not planning and paying for just a meal, no -- you're paying for a once-in-a-lifetime experience in avant garde cuisine with no menu; Jose Andres makes whatever he feels fit for the night, and probably won't ever make the same thing twice.
