Saddened by Ye Waverly Inn becoming another costly pretentious spot...$55 Mac&cheese!

The piece in the Daily News pretty much drove home that Graydon Carter et al have made the Waverly Inn into another overpriced touristy hell. Having grown up on Bank Street, I have fond memories of winter nights by the fireplace there, enjoying fried chicken and mashed. God it was good. Now, you'll get mac & cheese with truffles and you'll pay for it, by god! The portions don't look particularly generous either. The message is "pay our lease". I feel many of these over-priced restaurants are actually asking for charity. They insinuate that they can't make a living selling decent portions at fair prices, so essentially expect you to support their ineptness by paying exorbitant prices for a snack. I hate being served a plate with a smattering of food on it, especially when it's priced as if it were several courses.
