I will not pay for that!

No one can argue that Italian restaurants lead the pack for both upscale, fine, gourmet dining as well as hole-in-the-wall, family run local joints.

My circle of friends like to dine in nice restaurants, but they are not adventurous eaters. So, when it’s a night out at a good restaurant, I can forget the Thai and Vietnamese, it’s always steak or Italian.

Here’s my beef (no pun intended) how can you justify paying between $15 and $20 for a plate of pasta!! I’m not talking exotic ingredients… Spaghetti and meatballs or sausage. What’s worse, is being charged that for pasta alio oilo!! Come one…. It’s a buck’s worth of pasta and some olive oil and garlic. $15?!? So, if I have any input, I’ll go for the nice steak dinner. At least I can understand the high cost of quality beef.

So, what do you refuse to pay for at a restaurant? Not because it’s not good, and not because you can make it at home, but just because the price it too out of line for what you get??
