One of the most exclusive, most expensive restaurants in the United States is offering an alternative in these economic times. Where in times passed, the menu is prefix and dinner is $275 – that is the low end of what your bill will be, add drinks etc and you are walking out paying around $450 per person. Feeling the effects of the downturn in the economy they will now be offering a menu of a la carte items.
The New York Times reported that come this Wednesday, renowned chef Thomas Keller will begin offering the a la carte menu in their 24 seat lounge. The offerings are reported to be changing daily and will feature approximately 7-9 items. Price range is $24 to $46 and the dishes will be larger than the appetizers and smaller than their normal entrée size – so says the Times.
From McDonald's mini mac for $1.49 to Per Se's pre fixe for $275, you have to say I cover the gamut.
