On a very cold and rainy night this week, we thought we would drop in for dinner at KAPADOKYA on Montague Street, upstairs, where the old LEAF & BEAN was located.
We had dinner there last year,and thought it was OK, but expensive for what it was... the prices are not much less than HENRY'S END for starters and main dishes.
The Menu posted outside had lower prices than we remembered, and Monsieur had told me a few times he noticed that they had lowered their prices.
We walked upstairs and sat down and opened the menus. The prices were $3 and $4 per dish more than the Menu posted outside stated.
Ah! What to do? I suggested asking the waiter flat out, and Monsieur did exactly that. We were given some cockamamie story about "it is the lunch menu, I guess the guy forgot to change it". Monsieur told him the menu had been like that for a few months. The waiter turned his back and walked away.
Following suit, we did the same and left. We checked the Menu downstairs, and the word LUNCH had been scratched off the paper under the glass.
We walked over to HEIGHTS CAFÉ and had an excellent Caesar Salad and Burgers and fries.
This is the oldest restaurant trick in the book,bait and switch.
What would you have done?
