Somewhat recently Tempo (5th Ave, Park Slope, Brooklyn) changed their menu, turning it into a 3 course prefix dinner.
It sounds good -at first- when you consider that the price is $25 during the week and $35 during the weekend.
But when you examine the menu, you will see that several of the items have a surcharge. My bet is that often it is on an item you will want to order.
So you might actually pay about $41 for that $35 Friday or Saturday dinner. And if you do not want a dessert, you can order a cheese course instead & pay a surcharge again.
How much depends on how many cheeses you choose. So, suddenly your $35 dinner might cost you $47 or over $50 (I do not remember how much for 6 cheeses).
-For one person. -Not including wine or drinks. (or tax or tip). On Fifth Avenue in Brooklyn.
What if you are one of those groups (or people), where not everyone wants an appetizer (and/or a dessert)? Sounds like suddenly you are paying a lot more...for way more food that you want to/ will eat.
I am curious about what other Brooklyn Tempo patrons think about this new arrangement?
