Cello - Can they do this to me ???

Robin Majumdar | May 25, 2000 04:22 PM

Back in April I booked a table at Cello, I have just been informed that the owner has now decided that on that evening they will only offer a special menu priced at $130 (their anniversary apparently), no mention of this was made at the time of the booking.
They refuse to offer an a la carte menu. I'm not very happy about this especially as I don't think I'll be able to book a similar restaurant at such short notice (two weeks) unless I want to eat at 11pm.

Can they get away with this ? I don't know anything about US consumer law but surely if I've made a reservation and no conditions were attached at that time then I have a contract (albeit verbal) which they are now breaking.

I've eaten at many restaurants in Manhattan but this is the first time I've encountered something like this. I'd appreciate any feedback anyone may have and any suggestions for some restaurants for a special occasion.

Many Thanks
