How many calories do you reckon for a fine dining tasting menu?

I'm doing mfp on 1200 per day. This weekend I am being treated to a lovely evening in a posh restaurant and we will probably have the seven course tasting menu, likely with wines too.

How many calories do you think I ought to log for this? Ball park figure?

I think the courses are veloute, smoked fish, compression of pork, lamb, little cheese course, pre-dessert and then a dessert. Plus the wine which I guess is 125ml per course or so.

Do you think about 2000 calories? I don't mind what the answer is of course, I am going to eat it all and enjoy it whatever. But I feel like I would like to acknowledge the calories in my record somehow.

If there is a glass of wine with each course it's probably 800 cals alone.

I'd imagine it to be nearer 3000 tbf but who cares we all need a day off from time to time I've eaten my weight in fudge

There may well be extra courses, friend and I do a seven course taster a few times a year and it's more like ten.

Also which restaurant because I am nosey and love looking at menus

In my opinion the more stars the restaurant has, the fewer calories there will be.
if you have wine I'd be inclined towards 3000 ish, maybe more
