Bar menu in the dining room at Bergamot

LauraBear | Feb 12, 2013 07:56 AM

Four of us trudged over to Bergamot on Sunday around 5:45 pm intending to eat on the bar. Only one place open so we opted for a table, only to find out that the bar menu is not available at tables. Two of the four of us are bar regulars. The dining room was not very busy (this was before 6 pm, right after the blizzard).

I'm not slamming them - I am asking for reactions from those of you who are more knowledgeable and/or experienced in restaurant management. Is this common practice? Should they have made an exception?

BTW, we ordered lightly (two of us were not planning on eating dinner so early) and were treated with total professionalism and respect. When we left, the bar was still full and there were many, many empty tables.
