Recently at a high-end restaurant we were charged $1.50 extra for each drink ordered "on the rocks." Explanation given: More liquor is needed for a "rocks" pour.
Two days ago at another high end restaurant, $1.50 was added to the charge for a single malt ordered "Neat." Explanation given: More liquor needed for a neat "pour."
Of course, neither charge was on the menu nor stated by server. I did not pay.
However, these two experiences were so nuts on several levels, including the the opposing explanations ( both of which are bogus in context) as well as the suggestion that the price for the single malt on the menu was for a rocks pour!!!
Is this a new trend?
