Just had a delicious lunch at Jean-Georges (as usual). Every time I've been, though, the pricing has been for 2 courses (plus a supplement for any additional courses). But you could order whatever 2 courses you want, regardless of what "section" of the menu they were in. Today, I ordered two dishes from the "heavier" section of the menu (my words, as the 3 sections don't actually have headers or categories), and when the bill showed up, I had been charged and $8 "open food" supplement. Mind you, neither of the dishes l ordered carried a supplement in and of themselves (like some of the dishes do, like the egg caviar, scallops or wagyu). But this charge was just for ordering two dishes from the "entree" section. Is this a new policy? The menu certainly didn't specify this. It doesn't say anything about the $38 price being dependent on ordering one dish for the "lighter" sections and one from the "heavier". Has anyone else heard about this change?
Just wondering, because I've done this plenty if times before and not been charged extra.
