Yet another stupid question about plate splitting fees ...

ipsedixit | | Jan 19, 2013 06:00 PM

What do people think about a plate splitting fee when two people order an entree with the intention of splitting it and eating it as an appetizer, and then still ordering two entrees?

I understand the general rationale of plate splitting fees when two people order one thing, split it, without ordering more, because it's essentially the restaurant servicing two people for the price of one.

But isn't, ostensibly, the price and labor for two appetizers roughly equivalent (maybe even less) than one entree?

I'm ambivalent about this, but my companion had a bit of a conniption ...

Curious as to what people think.
