Agile Restaurants Reacting to the New Economy

scrumptiouschef | Dec 16, 2008 10:39 PM

Even as the winds of change blow across America there is a reality that area restaurants have to meet head-on if they are to remain solvent:A lot of people are cutting back on dining out as they react to layoffs,firings,cutbacks and giant hunks of their retirements evaporating.

It's to be expected.

The sage words of Run DMC "P-p-prices go up, don't let your pocket go down.When you got short money you're stuck on the ground" really ring true now.

So let's concern ourselves with special menus,bar menus,discount nights,early deals etc.

The happy hour bargains are being covered in another post so we'll leave that area alone.

I noticed Starlite has started a bistro menu to complement their normal offerings of $42 dollar steaks etc.

Chez Nous has a 3 course pre-fixe for about $25 that is generally reliable.

Eddie V's legendary Sunday and Monday all night specials have been celebrated for years and with good reason.They offer a fine bargain for what can be some very good food.

What restaurants have you noticed reacting to the current economy in a timely, intelligent manner?
