La Scala imposing a minimum per person!

yogachik | Mar 26, 2009 01:16 PM

I recently walked out of La Scala Presto Brentwood after ordering a half a chopped salad ($8.95), as did my mother, something we've been doing weekly for at LEAST 20 years (back in the Boutique days, even), and were informed that we each needed to order more to reach the $9.50/person minimum. We were told we should consider chopped tomatoes, or perhaps turkey, or even a soda, each, to be able to lunch there.

So, we left and had a lovely lunch at Pizzicotto, which made me remember how great the food is there (their pizza is soooo good, crunchy and thin crusted, close to what one would get in the Mediterranean).

Want to stay up to date with this post?
