Miyake's-What's With $25 pp Minimum?

maina | Nov 6, 2009 02:42 PM

Called Miyake in Portland for resv, and was told I could only make one before 6:30, so I made it for 6:00 for party of 2. After taking my name, and phone number, the man explained that since he was making a resv for us we would have to spend a minimum of $25 per person. He had a Japanese accent, so I assumed I had misunderstood and asked him to repeat it. Said the we'd each have to spend $25,for a total of at least $50. Have any other hounds had this experience? We've dined there twice before and loved it, but don't remember being asked to guarentee what we would spend! Never heard of having a minimum because you made a reservation!! And, at 6:00pm . . . And, if we were walk ins there would be no minimum. Hmmmm, wonder if our bill comes to $47.50 if he'll round it up to $50?? Thoughts?
