Hello...I'm speaking to a local steakhouse regarding a menu for our private party in a few months for about 30 of us. I've always thought the idea of the menu (in addition to convenience to the rest.) it offered a bit better pricing or perhaps items that are normally ä la carte, would be included. WHen I looked at their normal menu, I found for equal portions and identical beef we will be charged considerably higher and even higher on non beef selections. And all our salad and veggie options are also included in their normal (non private dining menu) as well. So what benefit is there for the customer by limiting their selection - other than ensuring the food is timely?
