How much should one expect to pay for fresh squeezed juice at a Midtown NYC hotel?

Not a trick question. Just really curious.

I normally don't drink juice, but when perusing a breakfast menu will often look to see (1) what is offered and (2) how much it costs -- just out of pure Chowhound Schadenfreude, I suppose.

Based on my very unscientific survey, the results thus far until now have been the following:

Clement (The Peninsula): $9.50
Ai Fiori (Langham Place): $7
Asiate (The Mandarin Oriental): $9
The Garden (Four Seasons): $8

So just based on that, I've always just sort of considered fresh squeezed juice at a Midtown hotel to be about the price of a burger and fries at Shake Shack, give or take a dollar or two.

Until today. Did you know that at the King Cole Bar inside the St. Regis you can have the privilege of paying $15 (before tax/tip) for a glass of fresh squeezed Granny Smith Apple Juice? It does come with ginger and mint at no additional cost, however.

That's more than a Margherita pizza at Kesté.

At $15, I just had to try it. And, you know what? It's mighty fine. Might be the best thing I've drank (liquor included) at a restaurant I've had *this* year so far.

Cheers.
