How many times have you ordered the special entree or app lovingly described by the waiter in every way except price, only to find out it was 50% more than the average menu listed item? Sure, you can always ask, but that can be awkward. I like the idea of specials being listed, with price, on a card attached tot he menu or on a clearly visible blackboard. I just ate at Chimichurri Grill (609 9th Ave), where the average entree (including steaks) are about $28. Two of us had the rib eye special and were surprised when we got the bill -- $44 each. Is this an opportunity for some consumer friendly regulation or is it my own damn fault? Curious to see what the community thinks....
