The high cost of dining out

Lauryn | Jan 7, 2004 10:33 AM

Interesting article I've linked below from Motley Fool, about restaurant mark-ups, whether they're fast-food, casual, or best place in the state. Helps you see where your money is going if you're dining out 2-3 times a week. Mark-ups can get to 300%! Wine is just as bad, if not worse. I'm no great cook but I don't order wine usually at a restaurant b/c the exact same wine I can get at Rodman's for 1/4 the cost. You pay for a good chef to prepare the ingredients you both can get at the local supermarkets, but allready bottled wine doesn't need cooking or prepping...
