I am going to La Mela in Little Italy tongight and have a question to those who have been there. While the place serves rather good, homestyle Italian (much better than the rest of the Mulberry street garbage), they do not have a menu, and therefore the final bill is always a surprise. The last time I went there, me and the waiter negotiated the bill. It was done in good fun, and I think he fully expected me to haggle. Tonight I am going with a larger group(some of whom I do not really know) and I wanted to make sure that such negotiations were still the accepted practice.
